New Website Unveiled

When Sue Carter joined the Kinsey Institute as Director, she brought with her an expanded perspective on human sexuality – the neurobiology of love and relationships. What came next was a new tagline, a new logo, and now, a new website developed by Alan Milner and Janae Cummings from the Office for the Vice President of IT at Indiana University. We invite you to visit and learn with us as we “explore love, sexuality, and well-being."

In the Collections

Drew Clark-Huckstep and Hallimeda Allinson of the IU department of history are combing the archives to present the history of the Kinsey Institute.

Kinsey Institute Receives Grant for Campus Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign

Students at Indiana University Bloomington will be getting the message about sexual health, sexual assault and related resources as they ride around campus this year. The Indiana University Women’s Philanthropy Leadership Council and the IU Foundation Well House Society have both awarded funds for a Campus Sexual Assault Awareness Campaign. The award will fund a two-year program that includes a campus bus-wrap advertisement designed to increase student awareness about consent, bystander intervention, and other sexual health issues. The Kinsey Institute will continue to partner with the Dean of Students Office and other health providers on campus for this campaign.
