Indiana University’s connections to the United States military date back to the school’s founding in 1820. Many of IU’s first students, faculty members, and trustees had military ties, including some who served in the War of 1812.
IU’s proud tradition of military involvement has remained strong over the past 200 years. Today the IU Bloomington campus is home to more than 500 veterans and nearly 750 military spouses and dependents. The Center for Veteran and Military Students helps veterans and military-connected students make the transition from the military to IU and provides support and resources during their time on campus.Learn about the military at IU
