Your education is more than a degree—it’s a turning point you work hard to reach. It’s your preparation for the world and for your future, wherever it takes you.
We believe in you and in what you can do. Set your goals, and we’ll help you reach them. Dedicated campus resources support our diverse student body. If you’re looking for advising, academic support, and counseling, you’ll find them—tailored to your specific needs. If you’re looking for opportunities—like research with professors or an internship that makes you stand out—we can help you find those, too.
Check out our Center for Multicultural Student Leadership and Engagement and our University College for more ways IUP supports your student experience.
