About

Home to two of Indiana's top universities

It was this commitment that was behind the merger of the Indianapolis campuses and programs of IUPUI—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 350 undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs from Indiana University and Purdue University.

Committed to fostering a welcoming environment

In the spring of 2016, IUPUI launched the Welcoming Initiative.

This initiative aims to make our campus a more welcoming place for everyone. Through a series of task forces, town halls, and focus groups, we’ve begun to identify ways we can change our campus for the better—and we're dedicated to finding even more.

We’ve also started to award Welcoming Campus Innovation Grants to projects that help implement the initiative’s recommendations.
