It's time to celebrate! For 70 years, academic programs in recreation, park, and tourism studies at Indiana University have helped create a better world through teaching, research, and community engagement.
From rural towns to bursting metropolitan areas, in state and national parks, in schools, universities, in hospitality and healthcare institutions, as well as community organizations, corporations, and non-profits, our 7,000 alumni are improving health, enhancing quality of life, and helping to prevent disease right here and around the world.
Founded in 1946 as part of the then Indiana University School of Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, both our department and the school's mission have evolved as it transformed into the Indiana University School of Public Health-Bloomington. Recognizing that the major health challenges of the 21st century are in large part behavior related, the school has the bold charge of reimaginging public health. We couldn’t be more proud to be a part of such an important mission.
While we’ve accomplished much in the last 70 years, the next 70 years promise to be both challenging and rewarding:
Your support is vital to ensure that we can attract, retain, support, and educate the next generation of achievers. YOU can help make the difference in creating a better world.
Your suggested contribution of just $70.00 in honor of our 70th anniversary celebration is much appreciated!
