Indiana University of Pennsylvania

Founded in 1875, IUP is a vibrant, comprehensive, research-based, teaching-focused, student-centered learning community. IUP combines the academic opportunities of a large university with the highly personalized and intimate learning-centered environment of a small college. Almost 13,000 undergraduate and graduate students are enrolled in our accredited and nationally recognized programs, enjoying traditional and nontraditional classroom experiences, engaging in research and service activities with their faculty mentors, becoming lifelong learners, preparing for rewarding careers and productive lives, and developing leadership skills for effective citizenship. IUP students enjoy an 18:1 student/faculty ratio. Nearly all classes are taught by faculty members, as opposed to graduate assistants.
