Since 1865, we've stood up: For hard work. For solid values. For sycamore trees. And for you.
We believe in public schools, public health, and the public good. We pursue happiness. Fairness. Opportunity. And the chance for every person to get a great education.
That’s why we offer more than 100 majors, 70+ online programs, and endless opportunities for our students (undergraduate and graduate). We challenge them to grow and learn inside and outside the classroom. And to make an impact on the community, whether right here in Terre Haute or halfway around the world.
Indiana State is committed to these core values:
- Learning: We prepare the next generation of leaders and citizens by providing personalized and transformative experiences that lead to success in the classroom and beyond.
- Discovery: We nurture intellectual curiosity and growth through the creation of new knowledge and the joy of enhanced human understanding.
- Engagement: We collaborate with our local and global communities to create long-term relationships, connectedness with integrity, and a shared sense of pride.
- Inclusiveness: We take action to honor the diversity of individuals, ideas and expressions, ensuring they are genuinely recognized, valued, and lived.
