The University of Indianapolis is a private, comprehensive, residential institution of 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students that is widely known for its strong, well-established academic programs in education, business, and health care – nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy and psychology.
Located in the University Heights enclave on the south side of Indianapolis, the University was founded in 1902 by the Church of the United Brethren in Christ, which through mergers later became the Evangelical United Brethren and, ultimately, The United Methodist Church. A display of flags from more than 60 nations in the Schwitzer Student Center reflects the international diversity of the campus.
The University of Indianapolis consistently ranks among the top 25 percent of institutions in its class in the Midwest and is one of Indiana’s largest producers of doctoral degrees, graduating more physical therapists, occupational therapists and clinical psychologists than any other university in the state.
The University’s motto of “Education for Service” emphasizes the development of ethical and moral values and their application in every career. Students are encouraged to apply their unique knowledge and skills to real-world needs – to “do good with what they know”– through volunteering, service opportunities incorporated in their course of study, and internships.
In addition to some 200 international students, the campus extends its hospitality to students of all faiths while providing extensive social, religious and extracurricular opportunities to a broad mix of students.
The University is a National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II affiliate, fielding 21 varsity sports for men and women.
