Among ICI’s advocacy initatives are:
Student Lobby Days
During each long legislative session, ICI invites students from ICI institutions to Student Lobby Day. This event is an opportunity for students to learn who their local legislators are and thank them, either by writing a card or meeting them in person, for supporting state financial aid.
ICI Day @ the State House
ICI Day @ the Statehouse is an opportunity for the presidents and other representatives from ICI institutions to meet and greet Indiana legislators. They thank them for supporting state financial aid and fill them in on what’s happening at each of their institutions.
Experience for yourself – and your students – the unique flavors of Indiana’s independent colleges and universities. High school counselors and independent counselors are invited to join us for the ICI Counselor Tour, sponsored by the Independent Colleges of Indiana and designed specifically to meet the needs of counselors and other adults assisting students with the college choice and admission process.
The 2024 ICI Counselor Tour will be held June 3 through 5. Registration details will be announced soon.Learn more

The Indiana Academy
The Indiana Academy exists to promote the advancement of Indiana through the Academy’s support of the Independent Colleges of Indiana, Inc., and its member institutions. The Academy achieves this by periodically recognizing and inducting into its membership Hoosiers in or from the state who have demonstrated exceptional leadership in philanthropy, business, public service, advancement of the sciences, the arts, literature, culture, and scholarship in connection with Indiana’s independent non-profit colleges and universities, and by focusing the public’s attention on the importance of Indiana’s private, non-profit colleges and universities to the richness of the life, culture, and economy of Indiana.
