Serving the community, and the world

Indiana University’s Radio and Television Services—IURTVS—brings a wide range of educational services to the academic community at IU, the residents of Indiana, and to the rest of the world.

In addition, IURTVS provides the surrounding area with WFIU Public Radio and WTIU Public Television programming that ranges from local public affairs and news to national programming from National Public Radio (NPR) and the Public Broadcasting System (PBS).

IURTVS is housed in the Radio/TV Center on the Bloomington campus of Indiana University. The building includes a $7.5 million addition of 19,000 square feet that adds principally classrooms and offices for the IU Department of Telecommunications and for the Virtual Indiana Classroom. The facility, as a part of the Multi-campus Technology Project, is being used for distance education and links all of IU’s campuses and other instructional sites.

We must consider new ways to build a great network for knowledge—not just a broadcast system, but one that employs every means of sending and storing information that the individual can use.

President Lyndon B. Johnson, upon signing the Public Broadcasting Act of 1967

Our mission

Media can make people more aware of the world around them, more informed, and more challenged. At its best, our media teaches and touches. Our values and activities are born of the purposes and hopes of Indiana University. We try to raise the level of public discourse and build community.

For us, this work is a public trust. We help listeners and viewers discover. We aspire to inspire.
