The Indiana University of Pennsylvania continues its commitment to Western Pennsylvania and Punxsutawney in particular with its West End Campus and the Academy of Culinary Arts in its downtown area.

Our regional campus nestled in the gently rolling hills of Western Pennsylvania, Punxsutawney is approximately 90 miles northeast of Pittsburgh and 100 miles south of Erie, accessible via Interstate 80, U.S. Route 119, and State Route 36. The borough, which is located in Jefferson County, is home to approximately 6,200 residents and one famous groundhog. Approximately 10,500 people live in the surrounding townships.

IUP is striving to find a partner with mutually beneficial goals that positively impact community, workforce and economic development in Punxsutawney and the region.
