University Collections

The once disparate and isolated collections are becoming one cohesive, cooperative entity that holistically considers all aspects of collections preservation, stewardship, and public accessibility. Such an approach both reinforces the value of IU's most prestigious collections and elevates those little-known, but still very important, collections across the state. The new Collections Teaching, Research & Exhibition Center (CTREC) at the McCalla School will be the centerpiece for these efforts, where collections from Bloomington and other IU campuses can be brought into conversation with one another, including collections in the visual arts, humanities, media, and beyond.
