In late August, nearly 30,000 students will converge upon the beautiful and welcoming IUPUI campus in downtown Indianapolis, each on their own path to a career and future. While they have a wide variety of career interests such as: engineer, biologist, writer, technologist, doctor, lawyer, police officer, artist, social worker, nonprofit leader, anthropologist, professional trainer, or teacher, many of them are connected by engagement.
