IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute
Established in 2012, the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute supports campus-wide attainment of excellence in research and creative activity in the arts and humanities.
The IAHI showcases and promotes the major intellectual and scholarly contributions that IUPUI faculty members from across the disciplines are making in the arts and humanities. It serves individual faculty members, groups, and interdisciplinary teams through grant programs, workshops, and research collaborations. Further, the IAHI encourages experiential and service learning opportunities for undergraduates in academic programs across campus.
As an urban institute, the IAHI works closely with the central Indiana community, serving as a liaison between local institutions, residents, and IUPUI. The IAHI fosters ongoing partnerships and ventures that advance arts and humanities endeavors both on campus and in the city. It works with Indianapolis’ diverse publics to create engaging new programming and forums for dialogue, creativity, and experiment.
The IAHI seeks to become a national model for an urban-based arts and humanities institute that is both a leader in academic research and creative activity and an active participant in its community.
