Defining the Jaguar spirit

At IUPUI, we are one with the city of Indianapolis. We develop talent, educating the leaders of today and tomorrow. We produce knowledge, providing the understanding and expertise that lead to new insights and discoveries. We build our community, finding viable solutions that address real-world challenges. As researchers, educators, students, colleagues, and graduates:

  • We drive innovation.
  • We turn potential into performance.
  • We work together to make our world a better place.

This—and so much more—is what it means to be an IUPUI Jaguar.

A place for innovation

Step onto the IUPUI campus, and you enter a new world. At IUPUI, people become Jaguars. Led by award-winning faculty, we push the boundaries of knowledge, charting new territory as we move forward. Our eyes focus on the horizon. Our goal: to make a transformative and positive difference in all that we do. We mark our progress by measuring our impact. In dollars, that’s more than a billion in economic impact on the city.

More important, we measure impact by the accomplishments of our graduates, who take their education with them as they build their communities and change our world.

IUPUI's impact, like the campus itself, is constantly evolving. It grows with every discovery, every recognition, and, most of all, every graduate. Jaguars are part of something bigger than themselves: a global community, a beacon of innovation, a 50-year legacy. As we look to the future of our campus, our city, and our world, we can be certain that Jaguars will be building that future with tools that they—themselves—have imagined, designed, and created. At IUPUI, when we combine talent, knowledge, and community, we get limitless potential.
