[00:25] We are still here for the students and many of the things that we have offered
historically in person have now moved virtual. And so everyone here in Office of Admissions

[00:34] is ready and willing to work with students and walk them through the process.
[00:37] [VIDEO: A woman in a white polo with a jaguar logo speaks to the camera from a brightly lit hallway. TEXT: “IUPUI. Jalysa King, Senior Admissions Counselor”]
[00:38] Counselors do so much work day in and day out for their students.
[00:41] [VIDEO: Jalysa King, carrying a messenger bag, approaches a building.]
[00:42] We have a counselor community that is a chance to bring together counselors from

[00:47] [VIDEO: Jalysa King speaks to the camera.]
[00:48] to come together and get the latest updates
of what we're offering, learn about programs, scholarships,

[00:53] so that way when you talk to your students, you know exactly what to tell them.
[00:56] [VIDEO: Melissa Myroup speaks to the camera.]
[00:57] I couldn't do my job without school counselors. It's such a vital role for the students and also for us here at IUPUI to help communicate information about our programs that we offer, help turning in applications, helping students to meet deadlines. I can't imagine not having a school counselor when I was going through high school.
[01:15] [VIDEO: Melissa Myroup, wearing a mask, looks through some papers at her desk.]
[01:16] And so the role that you all play is just so important and so valuable. And I appreciate that so much and I know that the students do as well.

[01:24] NASSER PAYDAR: High school counselors, like college advisors, do more than just guiding students towards education. They're psychologists, they need to know their students and the issues that they have. They're engineers; they're problem solvers.
[01:37] [VIDEO: Nasser Paydar and another person, both wearing masks, talk in front of a wall of photographs from the IUPUI campus.]
I do appreciate all they do, guiding their students at any given time,

[01:43] especially now.
[01:44] [VIDEO: Boyd Bradshaw speaks to the camera.]
[01:45] BOYD BRADSHAW: Your role is tremendous in ensuring that students are successful and that they see that pathway to college. And for us at IUPUI, we can't say enough and can't thank you enough for what you do in the importance of your work to ensuring that a student is successful, particularly in today's environment, which is so ever challenging. And we thank you for that.

Our Multicultural Center is a hub for student life related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. You’ll see information about our Multicultural Leadership Empowerment Program (MLEP), student organizations, social justice education, and cultural dinners.
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.
We have an office dedicated to student advocacy and resources. 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. Help Me ROAR is a website created to be a one-stop shop of information with campus and local community resources within a five-mile radius of IUPUI. We also have a school food pantry and clothing closet. Check out Paws’ Pantry and Paws’ closet.
We offer a variety of medical services at two convenient campus locations so you can get the care you need and stay well. You can find more detailed information on our website.
Additionally, we strive to support student wellness. Our Office of Health and Wellness Promotion can help students make changes to their health and wellness routine. They will help students tap into their own power with resources to improve overall fitness with health and wellness coaching, addiction recovery support, and other outreach opportunities and programs.
Mental health is equally important and students can find mental health services of all kinds, including individual and group counseling, medication management, self-screening tools, testing, weekly mindfulness meditation sessions, and more with our Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).
We have more on-campus housing options to choose from than ever before. Move in with us to find the Residential Based Learning Communities and connections you need or check out our resources for off-campus living.
Incoming freshmen are not required to live on campus; however, they are strongly encouraged to do so, due to the many benefits to their education.
All our students have the right to feel safe, supported, and respected. We also ask students to take responsibility to do their part to ensure others have the same experience. Check out our information about student conduct.
