Founded in 1820, Indiana University is celebrating its bicentennial this year. Who knew that you could draw a line from a scandal in the university’s early days to the selection of Herman B Wells as the youngest university president in the country? In celebration, the Office of the Bicentennial is telling this story, the stories of IU’s most influential presidents, collecting oral histories from IU alums, and honoring the contributions of women and minorities.
