Message from Leadership

Welcome to the Jaguar Family! I hope you will find that IUPUI is a special place, filled with dedicated students, faculty, staff, and alumni who will help your student be successful.

Our staff within the Division of Student Affairs is committed to supporting students by helping them make the most of their time at IUPUI and preparing them for life after college. We focus on providing programs, services, and experiences designed to facilitate holistic student learning and engagement by maintaining high expectations of students and supporting them to reach their full potential. We know, and research supports, that students who are involved on campus perform better academically and develop the social and leadership skills needed for success during college and beyond.

Our dynamic, urban campus offers an abundance of opportunities both in and out of the classroom. We invite your student to experience all that IUPUI has to offer by joining one of our more than 475 student organizations, representing a wide variety of interests. Each semester, our campus hosts hundreds of events and programs from leadership development workshops to speakers to philanthropic causes to movies and concerts. If your student enjoys sports, we have our Division I Jaguar athletic events to attend as well as dozens of club sports and intramural teams to join. There is never a shortage of things to do either on campus or within the vibrant city of Indianapolis so I encourage your student to create a well-rounded college experience.

As family and friends of IUPUI, I hope you too will become active members of our community and experience all that we have to offer, including joining the Jaguar Family Association.

Again, welcome to IUPUI! It is my hope that your student will experience a year that is full of opportunities that challenge and lead to growth.
