Opportunities to make an impact

The funds and campaigns listed here are just a few ways you can invest in our mission to support every IU Bloomington undergraduate student's academic experience. 

The OVPUE Fund provides a place where requests—that in the past have not been supported due to funding restrictions—are now considered. Over the years staff have noticed needs arise for emergency support, recognition events, and hospitality requests. However, OVPUE has not had significant unrestricted funds to help meet these needs and appropriately value the hard work of students and staff. Consider making a gift to build a fund that supports these needs—today and into the future.

A gift today will help OVPUE meet emerging needs as identified by its staff, including student engagement, staff recognition and enrichment, emergency support, and varied requests outside of operating budgets.

The Health Professions and Prelaw Center is wholly dedicated to the success of IU students seeking admission into professional programs in law, medicine, and other health professions.  The applicaton process into these professional schools can be rigourous and expensive.  Your support can enable a student to apply to multiple schools, travel to interviews, and increase their chances of award packages.   

Students that fall outside of or in between services typically provided by other University offices deserve support.  Students in Transition advisors help investigate and identify solutions and degree options that make the most sense for a student's particular background and goals.  Your gift can help a returning student priortize and achieve those goals.  

The Career Development Center strives to empower every University Division student to find their niche by engaging and understanding the impact of career planning.  Your gift enables students experiences to build a strong foundation for career success.

The Campus Writing Program is dedicated to improving our students’ The Campus Writing Program is dedicated to imroving our students' education by promoting writing as a tool to improve both learing and teaching.  Writing Tutorial Services (WTS) offers students one-on-one help with any phase of the writing process.  A gift can help this service remain free and accessible throughout many campus locations and provide resources to enhance our tutors education and experience.  

Engaged Learning provides students with the proper resources and opportunities in order for them to engage deeply in their learning. Support allows students to take what they learn in class, and apply it to real life situations through engaged learning activities like undergraduate research, internships, global engagement, and mentorship opportunities.
