Preparing students to communicate, innovate, solve problems, and contribute to local and global communities

Advancing your learning in and out of the classroom

IUPUI prepares you to communicate, innovate, engage in local and global communities, and solve the problems of the twenty-first century. Along this journey, you will have many opportunities to reflect upon your classroom and co-curricular learning, develop your expertise in your chosen field, and grow as a human being. You will become acquainted with each of the Profiles—Communicator, Problem Solver, Innovator, and Community Contributor—beginning in general education courses and first-year experiences and continuing as you progress along your pathway through your major coursework and co-curricular activities toward your capstone or culminating experience.
