2: WE REACH OUR HIGHEST ACADEMIC POTENTIAL AND EARN INDIANA UNIVERSITY DEGREES.
A world-class university with a place for every student. Indiana University is one of the country's premier public universities on one of the country's most beautiful college campuses. We offer more than 520 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, with 180 majors through 13 schools-- together offering more than 4,000 courses each semester. Many of our programs are rated in the nation's top 20. IU is also perennially ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of America's best public universities.
A legacy of academic leadership. Indiana University has always been an innovator and leader in academic and life-skills development for our student-athletes. In fact, Buzz Kurpius, the nation's first female assistant head football coach, established one of the first academic support programs for student-athletes in the country here at Indiana University.
Committed to individualized support for all. Our academic and student development services are there to help every student-athlete, regardless of background or academic ability. We offer constant support to each student-athlete--giving the personalized attention needed to reach his or her full academic and personal potential.
Our support services include:
- Supervised study
- Learning assessments
- Life-skills development
Center for Academic and Student Engagement. The new center, which opened in 2010, embodies our commitment to academic excellence. Located in the heart of IU's athletic campus, this 25,800-square-foot center for student-athletes includes:
- A state-of-the-art computer lab
- Collaborative study areas
- Quiet study rooms
- Three classrooms
- Private tutor rooms
- Staff offices
Much more than that, however, our new center also provides an intellectual and social community that contributes to the holistic development of student-athletes and stimulates camaraderie among every student throughout our 24 sports.
Accountability and integrity. We measure and manage academic achievement by student-athlete, program and our department as a whole. To ensure integrity, our department's academic support programs are evaluated independently by the University.
Partnerships. We want our student-athletes to achieve intellectual greatness. To make this a reality, we use every possible resource that our University has to offer--actively developing and fostering partnerships with professors, people and campus committees.
