An engaged campus means our students and faculty are working with the larger community to benefit the public good. At IUPUI, we incorporate courses, internship opportunities, and volunteer opportunities into the curriculum not only to make a difference in the lives of local residents, but to help you earn real-world work experience before you graduate.
