IU Work + Life Community Network


"Building Community Across IU Campuses, Peer-to-Peer"

IU Work + Life Community Network, where IU employee groups connect for engagement and enrichment around a shared interest or life stage. The Work + Life Community Network groups are peer-led and employee driven, so group members determine how and when they meet as well as the topic discussions and activities that will take place.

Groups will be added as they are formed. If you have an interest in joining or forming a group or know of a group already existing on your campus, please contact the Healthy IU | Work + Life office
