This is an invitation to you to become a part of IU history.
Emeriti House has been video interviewing retired faculty, coaches, senior administrators, and other notable IU people since 2005. To date, just over 200 individuals have been interviewed.
Our interviews probe colleagues’ experiences at IU: how and why they came to Bloomington; their lives as teachers, researchers, and contributors to the greater good of the campus, the university, and beyond; their observations about changing times, the changing nature of the academy, of students, of their own fields of study; other aspects of their lives they wish to share.
For the last several years, we have partnered with the IU Bicentennial Committee. As such, our recorded interviews join those the Bicentennial group is conducting with IU students, current faculty, and alumni, and become a part of the IU Archives. (Of course, interviewees also receive a copy of their interview, along with a printed transcript.)
We’d like to encourage you to sit for an interview. We use the state-of-the-art Beckley Studio in the College of Arts and Sciences’ Media School, in Franklin Hall. Typical interviews last about an hour to an hour and a quarter.
We will be glad to tell you more and hope you will decide to become a part of IU’s historical record.

Each spring, the Art Exhibit Committee is responsible for organizing and installing an annual juried exhibition. Retirees and their spouses and partners from IU Emeriti House and IU Retirees Association members, including those from other universities who now live in the Bloomington area, are invited to submit art for the annual exhibition. The committee welcomes work in all the visual arts.
Exhibitions have included collage, digital art, painting, photography, pottery, sculpture in various media, printmaking, textiles (including weaving, needlepoint, knitting, and embroidery), and woodwork. All art remains on exhibit until the next year’s show is installed so that visitors to the Emeriti House may enjoy seeing this exhibit throughout the year. In celebration of this event, an opening reception is held on the first Friday after the show’s installation. Wine and light refreshments are provided.
