Office of the President

As Indiana University's 19th and first female president, Pamela Whitten has united IU around three core missions: Providing broad access to an education for all students; pursuing world-class research, scholarship and creative activity; and improving Hoosier health and the economic, social, civic and cultural development of the state and the world.


Welcome from the president

I am honored to serve as university president and delighted to welcome you to Indiana University – a leading public research university with a worldwide reputation for academic excellence and an unmatched commitment to student success, innovative research, and service to Indiana and the world.
IU is home to world-class business and public affairs schools, the world’s first school of philanthropy, the nation’s largest medical school and the country’s first school of informatics. Our faculty and staff are truly passionate about helping students achieve their hopes, dreams and aspirations through the more than 930 academic programs offered across all campuses for our university.
With students, faculty and staff representing all U.S. states and more than 160 countries, our campuses are culturally rich and diverse communities. Together, we are building a global reputation as a student-focused research powerhouse, while strengthening the state and communities we call home.
Thank you for your interest in IU, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together. 

— Pamela Whitten
