Diversity

IUPUI has been named among the 30 best non-Historically Black Colleges and Universities for minorities in the United States by Diverse: Issues in Higher Education

IUPUI is committed to offering an intentionally inclusive and accessible campus community, one which inspires educational, personal, social, and professional achievement.

This commitment has paid off. The number of minority freshmen at IUPUI has been steadily rising over the past six years and recently the campus hired an assistant chancellor for diversity, equity, and inclusion, to ensure continued improvement of the campus diversity climate.
