2016 Report

The promise of here

Dynamic. Vibrant. Innovative. This is today’s IUPUI.

In the heart of Indianapolis, IUPUI beats with the energy that only a vast research and educational enterprise can generate. For nearly half a century, IUPUI has reached into the community and around the world to create and share new knowledge. As the city has developed into a magnet for 21st-century talent and industry, so too has IUPUI drawn the very best from across the globe.

Indy’s skyline frames the incredible opportunities awaiting students, faculty, and staff. The seat of state government, the home to cultural treasures, and the center for sports innovation: Indianapolis inspires curiosity, discovery, and learning, all of which drive groundbreaking research. Here is promise for the future. As dawn breaks over the city, IUPUI welcomes nearly 30,000 students and more than 7,000 full-time faculty and staff to begin the hard work of improving lives. That is the power of an IUPUI education.

Our commitment

IUPUI’s vision is to be a leading urban research institution recognized for the success of our students; our advances in health and life sciences; and our intellectual, economic, and cultural contributions to the well-being of the citizens of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, and beyond.
