The IAHI

IAHI OfficesEstablished in 2012, the IUPUI Arts & Humanities Institute (IAHI) supports research and creative activity across the Indianapolis University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus; serves as a campus liaison to the central Indiana community; and fosters ongoing partnerships and ventures that advance arts and humanities endeavors at IUPUI and in Indianapolis.

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, serving individual faculty members, groups, and interdisciplinary teams through grant programs, workshops, symposia, and research collaborations.

As an urban-based institute, the IAHI works closely with the Indianapolis community, connecting local institutions and residents with IUPUI. Working with Indianapolis’ diverse publics to create engaging new programming and forums for dialogue, creativity, and experiment, the IAHI also facilitates experiential and service learning opportunities for faculty-led student teams in academic programs across campus.

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.

The IAHI is a collaboration between the IUPUI Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research, the School of Liberal Arts, the Herron School of Art and Design, the IUPUI Library, the School of Informatics and Computing, the School of Engineering and Technology, the School of Science, and the School of Medicine.
