We also have a program called Diversity Enrichment and Achievement Program (DEAP) with a mission to enhance the transition and success of IUPUI students from populations that have been traditionally underrepresented in higher education by addressing academic, social, and personal matters that have an impact on persistence.
If students are looking to study academic programs that focus on identity exploration, we offer several opportunities. A good place to start is with our general education core that all IUPUI students complete requires that students take at least one course in cultural understanding. Check out the list of courses.

Their goal is to help students navigate through life’s ups and downs to make sure students have the support they need to succeed inside and outside of the classroom.
