Community Outreach Programs


Linking faculty and staff expertise with community needs is a priority of the University of Southern Indiana. By working with volunteer organizations and networks, an enviable array of public/private partnerships has evolved.

Historic New Harmony
A unified program of the University of Southern Indiana and the Indiana State Museum and Historic Sites, Historic New Harmony realizes its mission of inspiring “renewal and fellowship between people and communities” through its programs and collections. This work expands upon the original intent of the university’s involvement in New Harmony, which was to nurture this “living laboratory” for ideas by encouraging cultural and educational programs, while maintaining preservation of historic properties.
