Indianapolis is our home, and it's one of our biggest points of pride. We are the thirteenth largest metro area in the United States. Together we're 1.9 million people strong, and together also, we build a stronger local, national, and global economy.
So when it comes time to get the internships and other hands-on work experience we know will be so crucial to your success as a student (and the thing that will ultimately jump-start your career) you won’t have to struggle to find it.
Community engagement is built into our curriculum
The commitment to improve the quality of life in Indianapolis and beyond is a defining attribute of IUPUI. Community engagement is one of our pedagogical strengths: it will be foundational to your success as a student, and it’s a mind-set adopted by Jaguars from the first year they’re here.
We carry out our commitment through civic and service learning, which emphasizes active participation in the community to improve the quality of life in the city, and elsewhere.
