A foundation of diversity

Diversity is at the core of our culture at IUPUI. We’ve worked from day one to build a diverse campus community that reflects IUPUI’s urban environment, embracing a broad definition of diversity that includes gender, race, ethnicity, veterans, people with disabilities, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.

The Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) leads IUPUI’s efforts to create and sustain a welcoming, inclusive, and equitable campus climate. DEI is home to a range of offices, centers, programs, and initiatives that educate, engage, and empower the IUPUI community.
