University Description
Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis is ranked third in "up and coming" American universities that U.S. News and World Report says people should be watching, and the 8th best public college in the Midwest according to Forbes. IUPUI is the home of nationally-ranked programs in nursing, public and environmental affairs, law, and health and is a campus renowned for service learning and civic engagement. IUPUI is Indiana’s premier urban university, with 21 schools and academic units which grant degrees in more than 200 programs from both Indiana University and Purdue University. Its location within blocks of downtown Indianapolis facilitates advancement of research and teaching, and presents unique opportunities for internships, partnerships, community engagement, and more. IUPUI enrolls more than 30,000 students representing all 50 states and 122 countries.

Region Description
IUPUI takes pride in Indianapolis, with a core focus on civic engagement and participation in the culture and events of the city through Community Relations. IUPUI is blocks from all that downtown Indianapolis has to offer. Indianapolis is the country’s 13th largest city, large enough to play host to the Indianapolis 500 (the largest single-day sporting event in the world), the 2012 Super Bowl, the world’s largest children’s museum, the Heartland Film Festival, Black Expo, and Indy Jazz Fest. And Indy is small enough to personify small-town charm, with flavorful cultural districts, convenient public transportation, and a strong sense of community. IUPUI is in the heart of it all, located just two blocks from the Indiana State Capitol and adjacent to the White River State Park (home of the State Museum and Indianapolis Zoo) and the Indiana Avenue cultural district.
