As Indiana’s premier urban public research university, IUPUI believes in the power of transformation. We are committed to providing educational opportunities that transform the lives of our students, our community, and the changing world around us.
Home to two of Indiana's top universities
It was this commitment that was behind the merger of the Indianapolis campuses and programs of Indiana University and Purdue University—some of which are more than 100 years old—that won accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission in 1969, creating IUPUI.
And it’s what binds us together today. We’re now Indiana’s premier urban research university offering more than 200 degree programs from both Indiana University and Purdue University.
