Since 1885, the Indiana Academy of Science has supported the scientific research and science education of our state's scientists and science students. It is one of the oldest scientific professional membership organizations in the United States, the only multidisciplinary scientific organization in the state of Indiana, and is dedicated to promoting scientific research, diffusing scientific information, improving education in the sciences, and encouraging communication and cooperation among scientists.

The  Indiana Academy of Science accomplishes its mission by bringing together Indiana, Midwest, and National leading and emerging scientists, and Indiana science graduate and undergraduate students, at its Annual Academy Meeting, engages the Indiana lay and professional community in the annual Science and Society Fall Forum, awards Indiana Academy of Science Research Grants, has an active Youth Activities Program, conducts annual BioBlitz field studies, offers for purchase Books and Special Publications, publishes the celebrated Proceedings of the Indiana Academy of Science, and produces a quarterly newsletter.

The Academy accomplishes the above missions with a Council consisting of elected members, an Exective Director, Elected Committees, Appointed Committees, and Sections representing physical and life sciences.  To learn more, click on one of the organizational entities and also read about our extensive history.
