Overview

Leading Midwest University Known for Health Sciences, Education, and Business

The University of Indianapolis, popularly known as UIndy, is a private, comprehensive and diverse institution of higher education located on nearly 70 acres, just minutes from downtown Indianapolis. Affiliated with the United Methodist Church, UIndy is distinguished by highly respected undergraduate programs in teacher education, communication, and the health sciences; nationally ranked graduate programs; and Centers of Excellence focusing on aging studies and education reform. Personal attention, small, interactive classes, and flexible programming are the rule rather than the exception.

Founded in 1902, UIndy has a home campus of more than 5400 students and partnership sites in Asia and Central America. The University of Indianapolis draws a higher percentage of international undergrads than all but two Hoosier universities -- bringing the world to Central Indiana.

UIndy is ranked among the top 25 percent of master's degree-granting institutions in the Midwest by "US News and World Report". In a national survey of college students, UIndy faculty members rank near the top in accessibility and helpfulness. Graduating seniors are more satisfied with their educational experiences than their counterparts at similar universities. The university's mission is to prepare its graduates for effective, responsible, and articulate membership in the complex societies in which they live and serve, and for excellence and leadership in their personal and professional lives.
