A history of commitment

In 1962, Indiana University became home to the Uralic and Altaic Language and Area Center, which was renamed the Inner Asian and Uralic National Resource Center (IAUNRC) in 1981. For the last 60 years, IU has gathered leading specialists, impressive library collections, and top-quality academic resources to create the nation's premier program in Central Eurasian Studies. Additionally, it has utilized these resources to provide quality training and outreach programs that continue to serve the entire country.
