University of Indianapolis, Athens Campus

Introduction

The University of Indianapolis is a private residential university established in 1902. It offers its diverse student body a comprehensive set of general, pre-professional, and professional programs grounded in the liberal arts. In keeping with its motto of "Education for Service," the University is committed to contributing to the quality of life in the community.

Founded in 1902, the University of Indianapolis is a not-for-profit, comprehensive, co-educational University located in the capital city of Indianapolis, Indiana. To facilitate the ever-growing global community, the University of Indianapolis offers courses leading to Bachelor and Master degree programs at the university's campus in Athens, thereby increasing students' exposure to cultural diversity through faculty and student exchanges.

Since its founding, the University of Indianapolis has had just eight presidents: J.T. Roberts (1905-1908), L.D. Bonebrake (1909-1915), I. J. Good (1915-1944), I. Lynd Esch (1945-1970), Gene E. Sease (1970-1988), G. Benjamin Lantz Jr. (1988-1998), Jerry Israel (1998-2005), and Beverley J. Pitts (2005- ).

Philosophy

The University of Indianapolis seeks to prepare its students for life in an increasingly complex, rapidly changing world. To this end, the University's curriculum encourages development of the total person, including intellectual, physical, moral, and spiritual aspects. This curriculum reflects a commitment to Christian values and rests upon the conviction that learning should be a lifelong activity. It therefore stresses the ideals of critical, rational thought; independent, responsible inquiry; novel, creative expression; and sensitive, reflective morality. Recognizing the unique worth of the individual, the University strives to nurture in its students the qualities that make a meaningful life possible, and the wisdom to recognize that such a life is inseparable from personal and social responsibility.

Mission

The mission of the University of Indianapolis is to prepare its graduates for effective, responsible, and articulate membership in the complex societies in which they live and serve, and for excellence and leadership in their personal and professional lives. The University equips its students to become more capable in thought, judgment, communication, and action; to enhance their imaginations and creative talents; to gain a deeper understanding of the teachings of the Christian faith and an appreciation and respect for other religions; to cultivate rationality and tolerance for ambiguity; and to use the intellect in the process of discovery and the synthesis of knowledge.
