Metz Bicentennial Grand Carillon, an unveiling of new murals in Franklin Hall and Wright Quadrangle, a lecture from Academy Award-winning actress Viola Davis and more.

To help the university celebrate this momentous occasion, distinguished alumni, world leaders and international educators shared happy birthday video messages.

Receive Tax Form 1095-C sooner with electronic delivery

Each year, IU is responsible for providing information about the medical coverage offered to you by IU on IRS Form 1095-C. These forms are sent to anyone who was a full-time employee or enrolled in an IU medical plan for at least one month during the year.

By default, this statement is mailed to your home address. But just like the W-2, you can save paper and time by signing up to receive your 1095-C statement online. You will also have access to the electronic form much sooner than those that are mailed.

Those who choose electronic delivery will receive a message to their IU email account when the statement is available to view and download. A paper copy of the statement will not be mailed unless specifically requested. No matter which delivery option is chosen, employees can always access and print the statement online at any time.

There are two ways to access electronic delivery consent; both require authentication with an IU network ID and passphrase:

  • Use the 1095-C Electronic Consent task in One.IU; search for "1095-C Electronic Consent."
  • Visit the Payroll and Tax section of the Employee Center. Visit One.IU and search for "Employee Center." Select the "Payroll and Tax" tile, then select "1095-Consent" from the left-hand navigation.

For more information about Form 1095-C, visit the 1095-C web page or contact IU Human Resources at askhr@iu.edu or 812-856-1234.

One's personal goals for 2020 might include reducing stress and achieving better peace of mind. Healthy IU has an online option available to help.

A mindfulness meditations program is offered from 12:30 to 1 p.m. Eastern Time Tuesdays from Jan. 28 through March 3.

The online guided meditation practice requires no registration, is offered on a drop-in basis and can be accessed through Zoom. Nancy Lethem, a mindfulness instructor, will be the facilitator.

It's recommended that participants who are in a shared workspace wear earbuds or headphones, or identify a quiet space, to fully benefit.

How do I know what training I need?

Training and education are a key component of the IU Compliance Program. Compliance training and education help IU community members understand their compliance responsibilities, as well as the policies and/or regulations that impact compliance initiatives at IU.

Different roles at the university have different training requirements. For questions about the kinds of training required in your role, a good first stop is your supervisor. Additionally, the University Compliance Office has developed guidelines for commonly required training.

IU offers a wide variety of online training programs through the eTraining portal, which can be accessed through One.IU. Training programs that have periodic renewal requirements will send employees a message when training is about to expire, and accomplishments within the environment will be saved in one handy place for future reference.

For questions about training requirements, contact University Compliance at comply@iu.edu.
