IUPUI's Next Chapter

Heart of Indiana. Home of innovation.

Because we share a mission to propel Indiana’s economy, collaboration with Purdue remains central to our plan. We will continue embarking on life-changing initiatives together, such as the creation of a new biosciences engineering institute.

We are building on IUPUI’s more than 50 years of accomplishment to propel us into becoming one of the preeminent urban research universities in this country.

Ownership of programs

IU will continue to own and operate the Indianapolis campus. We will assume full responsibility for what is now the School of Science; bolster our training for tomorrow’s IT workforce by expanding our Luddy School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering; and amplify our health science capabilities.

Continuity for students

Current students will experience little immediate change. They will continue earning their degrees from either IU or Purdue, and all existing programs will continue being offered on the Indianapolis campus. 

Faculty and staff impact

The campus will continue operating with outstanding faculty members teaching and conducting world-class research alongside dedicated staff members supporting day-to-day operations.

Task forces for success

With careful planning, we formed task forces to address a variety of specific areas. We're dedicated to ensuring a smooth transition and realignment will be complete by the start of the 2024 academic year.
