At IUP, Research Is Part of Our DNA
Whether we’re researching how zebrafish can regrow kidneys, unearthing artifacts at abandoned settlements, training future police officers to better understand racial issues, finding ways to protect lungs from nanoparticles, or discovering a dinosaur, IUP faculty members and students are seeking discoveries.
Our approach to research makes IUP stand out from the crowd.
Every year our student and faculty researchers receive millions of dollars in grants to fund their work so they can continue to make discoveries.
The Carnegie Foundation classifies IUP as a doctoral university with high research activity. That’s an honor met or exceeded by only about 7 percent of colleges nationally.
Changing the World While Changing Students’ Lives
When we roll up our sleeves and dig into research, we do it locally with an eye on a global application. While our research changes the world, it also changes the experience our students have. They leave here confident in their ability to solve problems, think critically, and are ready to remain curious as they enter the workforce.

IUP Anthropology believes that experiential learning is the cornerstone of student success. Anthropology is something that you have to do in order to really understand. An important part of that experience building is summer field schools. This summer, Anthropology is offering four field schools: Archaeological Field Schools, Advanced Archaeological Field Methods, Forensic Archaeology Field School, and Underwater Cultural Resource Management.
