IU Bloomington awarded NEH grant to create integrated center for the arts and humanities
Indiana University has been awarded a $500,000 matching Infrastructure and Capacity Building Challenge grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to fund renovations to Maxwell Hall for the creation of an integrated center for the arts and humanities.
The establishment of a campuswide center reflects the university's commitment to the arts and humanities as essential to the success of all IU schools. Its central location in the historic Old Crescent area of campus will serve the diverse creative interests of students and faculty across degree programs. It will also further the Arts and Humanities Council's work promoting public-facing arts and humanities initiatives and advancing creative ties between the campus arts scene and communities throughout the city and region.
