Board of Advisors

Chairman's Message

Welcome to the home page of the Indiana University-Purdue University Columbus (IUPUC) Board of Advisors. The Board consists of 27 community members from commerce and industry, local government and education, the not-for-profit sector, economic development, and health-care, who meet on a regular quarterly basis to promote the mission of IUPUC. The mission is to be the first choice for those who seek a small campus experience in south central Indiana emphasizing intellectual and personal development, community engagement, and preparation to enter the global workforce. 

Additionally, we are an advisory committee to the vice chancellor and dean regarding issues of importance or concern to the campus, community and to south central Indiana.

We support the four overarching strategic goals for IUPUC which are:

  • Delivering the right academic programs at the right times
  • Sustaining academic and scholastic achievement
  • Creating a welcoming campus focused on the reasons why students, faculty, and staff choose IUPUC
  • Serving community and regional cultural, intellectual and economic development

The degree programs offered at IUPUC, in close affiliation with IUPUI, allows us to offer you access to a broad range of undergraduate degree programs—business, communication studies, elementary education, English, general studies, mechanical engineering, nursing, psychology and sociology. You can also continue your studies toward a graduate degree in our Master of Business Administration (MBA) or Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling programs.

IUPUC is an important piece of the educational pie located in Bartholomew County and serves over 2,300 students annually and employs 251 full-time faculty and staff, adjunct faculty and part-time staff.  The Board of Advisors is proud to be a part of IUPUC’s support system for its continued success.
