IUPUI faculty and students participate every year in activities that enhance lives in the Indianapolis community and beyond.
That’s not just a tagline or a talking point; it’s documentable work that anyone can explore, thanks to a new map launched by the IUPUI Office of Community Engagement.
On the map — dive in yourself here — are points representing more than 360 activities, heavily concentrated in Indianapolis and within the I-465 loop but stretching across the country and as far away as Africa. Each one represents an activity or where an activity’s community partners are located, with details about faculty, schools/centers involved and the scope of the work. Among all the activities, more than 5,000 IUPUI students have participated.
“The map further demonstrates IUPUI’s commitment to Central Indiana,” said Amy Conrad Warner, vice chancellor for the Office of Community Engagement. “It provides essential information about initiatives underway, assets in the community and partners who contribute to a common goal.”
