The University of Indianapolis is quickly distinguishing itself as one of the nation’s top-quality universities. Major campus improvements, innovative academic initiatives, and a top-tier ranking in U.S.News & World Report have created record enrollments and a powerful combination of features that benefit students in ways you never imagined.
Why wait to do what you love?
Our goal at the University of Indianapolis is to inspire excel-lence—in the classroom, in the community, on the playing field, and beyond. At the heart of our education are inspiring faculty who know you personally. They help you discover and develop your life’s passion by connecting you to opportunities to practice what you love—before you graduate.
Expect a life-changing curriculum
We offer a top-notch education that combines a liberal arts and career-oriented curriculum that our graduates call life-changing. Special facilities such as our new Health Pavilion allow students to enhance classroom learning with real-life clinical experiences and simulations. Krannert Memorial Library was recently renovated. The transformed library features The Writing Lab, a café, an outdoor plaza, and a 24-hour study lab. You can choose from more than 80 undergraduate academic programs. We also offer 27 master’s programs and five doctoral programs, including those in our Schools of Occupational and Physical Therapy, which rank among the finest in the nation.
Our location in the state capital provides an awesome advantage in finding internships and service learning opportunities. And if you desire additional real-world experiences before you graduate, you might consider one of our study abroad opportunities. During our unique three-week spring term, you can be a part of faculty-led international trips to different destinations each year: recent trips included Germany, Japan, and Ecuador. You can also study for a semester at universities around the world with which we maintain relationships, including Oxford University’s Harris Manchester College.
Blossom in and out of the classroom
You’ll have lots of options here to make your life richer. You might join the departmental club within your major or a group that is completely unrelated. We make sure you have opportunities to get involved in all kinds of extracurricular experiences: clubs, service groups, faith-based activities, the arts, athletics—you name it.
When it comes to your professional preparation, we make sure you have time—before you graduate—to start practicing what you learn outside the classroom. Many majors offer practical experience, which gives you an edge in the job market. Our Indianapolis location offers valuable internship and applied learning experiences at organizations such as Rolls-Royce, the NCAA, the Indiana Pacers, renowned medical centers, major media outlets and radio stations, the Indianapolis Colts, Eli Lilly and Company, and the Indianapolis Children’s Museum.
Is this the place for you?
Do you want to learn in small classes taught by professors who know you? To contribute to a club, a team, or the community? To meet people from close to home and from every corner of the globe? To be close enough to a city where you can practice what you’ve learned in the classroom and make potential job contacts? If you’re looking for these things and more, the University of Indianapolis may be for you.
We look forward to telling you more.
