The international student population has rapidly grown at Indiana University over the years, an achievement that is a source of pride for the institution. But how did we get here? This exhibition examines the history of international student involvement at IU Bloomington, while focusing on the challenges and progress of promoting an inclusive environment. Some of the first international IU graduates, clubs, photographs, handbooks, programs, and personal stories are among the items featured. These materials provide the viewer with a variety of perspectives, ranging from the 19th to the 21st centuries, to help demonstrate the journey of the international student experience at Indiana University.

This was originally a physical exhibit at the IU Libraries University Archives from August 1-October 31, 2017. Curated by Kristin Browning Leaman. Converted and expanded to a digital exhibit in 2021 by Lillian Cox and Kristin Leaman.
