Its mission is to provide high-quality undergraduate and graduate degree programs and services that prepare students for productive careers and citizenship in a diverse society. IU Southeast aims to shape the future of the region by transforming good students into great leaders, one graduate at a time.

Academic Excellence, Unmatched Value
