The IUPUI campus must inspire and engage, supporting the highest levels of achievement.
It must continue to be a hub of innovation for the region and a magnet for talent. It must be a destination campus not only for faculty, staff, and students but also for the broader community, a place where people gather to celebrate, to share ideas, and to think deeply about our world.
Launched in the spring of 2016, the Welcoming Campus Initiative has already started to transform our campus and its connection to our community.
Taking into consideration faculty, staff, student, alumni, and community member perspectives, the initiative reflects the spirit of our campus in its collaborative and inclusive approach.
Just as our Campus Center provides a venue for Indy Jazz Fest and other community celebrations, so too does our iconic IU Natatorium bring people from across the country and around the globe. Fully renovated this year, the IU Natatorium became the first athletic facility in Indiana to achieve zero-waste goals and hosted the first Olympic event to have the zero-waste designation.
