It all starts with you.
We've set a goal of raising $50 million by 2021 through the Campaign for the University of Indianapolis. A stronger community takes an even stronger university—and that starts with you. These four campaign pillars are the driving forces behind our efforts and describe how funds raised through the campaign will be used to transform the UIndy community for years to come.
More than 40 percent of our students are first-generation college students, and almost 90 percent receive some form of financial assistance. On campus, students need challenging and engaging programs that will help them to learn and grow, programs that address current issues and inspire engaging work, and research experiences that prepare them for careers and future study.
We believe that the best learning happens when students and faculty share a close community. Our 12-to-1 student-faculty ratio ensures that these strong relationships will continue. We must ensure that talented and committed faculty continue to define the UIndy experience, through new endowed chairs, new research and new professional opportunities.
For our students to learn and develop as teachers, health providers and community leaders, our facilities must provide inventive, experiential and cooperative learning. In classrooms and labs, innovation hubs and collaborative spaces, our students discover, learn and problem-solve, bringing health breakthroughs, learning opportunities, solutions and service to our communities.
We strive to be both relevant and responsive, always seeking new ways to connect with real-world challenges and identify innovative solutions. To that end, we must invest in new possibilities as they arise, enabling UIndy to engage transformational opportunities that resonate with its mission and are catalysts for a better community, nation and world.
We wholeheartedly thank our donors and supporters—past, present and future—for their dedication to the community that UIndy has helped build. Without you—the parents who entrust us with the education of your children, the alumni who chose us as your alma mater, and those who support us through your generous donations—UIndy could not be what it is today.
