Diversity & Resources
Multicultural Success Center
IUPUI has many resources available to help students succeed. The Math Assistance Center, the Writing Center, the Bepko Learning Center, and the Multicultural Success Center are just a few.
The Multicultural Success Center has a focus on cultural programming, awareness and understanding as well as academic success and mentoring, student organization development and support and leadership development.
National Society of Black Engineers
The Purdue School of Engineering and Technology has an active NSBE chapter. Funding from the School of Engineering and Technology Student Council has provided funding for AUC students to attend NSBE National Conferences.
Though nearly a 30,000-student population, students are not just a number at IUPUI. Smaller class sizes than expected exist for a university of its size and individual attention are routinely part of the IUPUI experience.
