Communiversity – Book-Club-Style Course!

Since 2016, the University of Indianapolis has offered a book-club-style course called Communiversity — where lifelong learning meets community engagement. This course is open to everyone; alumni, current students and community members alike! For those who love to read, or interested in social mobility and responsibility, philanthropy, and law vs. justice then UIndy’s Communiversity 2024 is for you!

The course takes place throughout the fall semester (September through December) and includes lectures and online discussions about the course’s book of focus. This semester, Communiversity will read and discuss Charles Dickens’ 1852 novel Bleak House

Attendees do not need to be admitted UIndy students, and no tuition will be charged; the course is $10. Attendees must have a high school diploma or equivalent credential to participate. Registering for the course allows access to the online discussion forum and other course materials. 

Bleak House is an intricate tale that delves into the complexities of the legal system while shedding light on the social injustices faced by its characters. It intertwines multiple storylines that ultimately reveal the devastating effects of a protracted lawsuit legal case.


Registration deadline is Friday, August 30
Class begins Monday, August 26
