Connections to IUPUI PLUS

We are committed to furthering your educational pursuits both inside and outside of the classroom. For this reason, our residential curriculum was designed keeping in mind IUPUI’s Profiles of Learning for Undergraduate Success. The Profiles of Learning for Undergraduate Success prepare you to communicate, innovate, solve problems, and contribute to local and global communities.

In our work with our residential curriculum, the learning experiences we promote also support co-curricular activities on campus, the general education program, and even major- and minor-specific course work. 

Personal Responsibility support’s the Profile’s focus on students being a Problem Solver.

Interpersonal Communication directly connects to the Profile’s focus on students being a Communicator.

Identity Development and Community Engagement build upon one another to support the Profile’s focus on students leaving IUPUI to become Community Contributors.
