The Road Ahead

A Stronger Future

In December 2016, the Purdue University and Indiana University Boards of Trustees approved a realignment agreement regarding the governance of the Fort Wayne campus. The outcome will allow each university to focus on its strengths and better meet the needs of the northeast Indiana region and beyond.

We take pride in the university’s history, helping 57,000 alumni achieve their goals, partnering with 250 businesses and 30 universities across the globe, and connecting hundreds of students with local internships each year. Today, more than 8,300 degree-seeking students attend IPFW with the goal of furthering their education, making them exceptional candidates in the global workforce.

In this time of change, here’s what you need to know:

  • Fort Wayne is home to this campus as we are this region’s Metropolitan University.
  • Our commitment to student success is stronger than ever. Current and future students will continue to receive outstanding academic and financial support.
  • Our quality programs will continue to be accredited and taught by the same world-class faculty.
  • We are on track to celebrate another 1,000 degrees earned at our 2017 Commencement and look forward to welcoming more than 2,000 new students in fall 2017.
  • The realignment agreement provides exciting opportunities for growth and expansion.
  • We remain committed to meeting the region’s needs.
