Indiana University includes faculty specializing in Romanian Studies in various departments: History, Political Science, French and Italian, Geology, and others.
Indiana University’s Romanian collection is among the top four at university libraries in the United States. The Herman B Wells Library has more than 15,000 volumes in the Romanian language. The IU Libraries maintain exchanges with university libraries in Cluj and Bucharest and with the Romanian National Library. Indiana University’s Moldovan Collection is also growing in the broader context of the Slavic and East European collection’s efforts to support IU's growing academic interest in the small post-communist nations. It currently consists of about 1,700 titles. REEI has area-related films and other materials for loan.
The IU Language Workshop provides opportunities for graduate students to study Romanian in Romania during the summer with the support of the US Department of State Title VIII Fellowships.
The Romanian Studies Organization brings together students across campus with an interest in Romania. REEI and the Romanian Studies Organization host the annual Romanian Studies Conference for graduate students and recent Ph.D.s in the humanities and social sciences.
