Chancellor’s Message

Welcome to IPFW

Thank you for choosing Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne for your undergraduate studies. You’re certain to find a course of study in the more than 190 academic programs IPFW offers that will meet and perhaps exceed your expectations.

Faculty at IPFW are not just dedicated teachers, they are also nationally and internationally known scholars and researchers. You can be certain that the program you select will be of the highest quality. The professional accreditation by specific programs gives you further assurance that these degrees have met recognized national standards.

Undergraduate programs at IPFW prepare you for life, whether that means you enter the workforce in your chosen field or continue your studies at the graduate level. Many programs offer unique theoretical and practical hands-on learning experiences that draw on community resources. IPFW’s small class sizes give you and your professors the opportunity to discuss issues and class assignments, or perhaps even collaborate on a research project.

Your undergraduate experience doesn’t have to be all books and classrooms; it can be wonderfully enriched if you decide to get involved in any of the nearly 100 student organizations, Division I or intramural sports, and other special-interest activities. The Student Handbook Planner provides details on how you can get involved.

University services and support systems are for all students. The recreational facilities at the Gates Sports Center, informational resources of Helmke Library, productions at Williams Theatre, and job-placement assistance through Academic Counseling and Career Services are just a few of the resources available to you.

You have my best wishes for reaching your personal and career goals through your undergraduate studies at IPFW.

With warm regards,

Michael A. Wartell
