The purpose of this organization is to bring together hyperraced and historically underserved populations on Indiana University Bloomington’s campus, into a safe and comfortable place where students can be supported in their academic, personal, and professional development. We also aim to provide services that help students with career exploration, identify on-campus resources, and navigate obstacles face by underrepresented students at Indiana University.
IU Books & Beyond is a collaborative leadership development project that works to develop critical literacy skills and multilingual, intercultural models for cross-cultural teaching and learning. IU Books & Beyond is a University Student Organization. We are affiliated with the African Studies Program and the School of Education at Indiana University Bloomington.
We seek to discuss, challenge, and dismantle issues and barriers that hyperraced and traditionally underrepresented communities face in the field of education through empowerment and advocacy. In addition to serving the School of Education (SoE) community, CODE will work with the local communities to support education. CODE will serve as a communal space for individuals to openly discuss challenges, share success, and build a network of support between students, faculty, staff, experts, and educators.
