Indiana University Northwest understands the challenges students face in completing a four-year or advanced university degree. Consider the convenience IU Northwest offers to help our students achieve academic success.

IU Northwest offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in more than 70 academic programs, including:

- Arts and Sciences (including Master of Science in Clinical Counseling and Master of Liberal Studies)

- Business and Economics (including AACSB-accredited Evening and Weekend MBA)

- Health and Human Services (including Master of Public Affairs and Master of Social Work)

- Education (including Master of Science in Elementary or Secondary Education, or Educational Leadership)

Student Ready

Logging record enrollment for the Fall 2013 semester, IU Northwest had prepared for expected enrollment increases through recent campus investments, including expanded online course offerings.

Ninety-one online courses in 16 disciplines are offered this semester, an 18 percent increase in course offerings as compared to one year ago. Additional online courses are planned for the coming semester.

The Indiana State Budget Committee’s approval in July to proceed with construction of a 106,000-square-foot, $45 million facility to replace Tamarack Hall is also a significant campus milestone.

The building, to be located on the east side of Broadway at 35th Avenue, will serve both IU Northwest and Ivy Tech Community College Northwest.

An additional legislative advance for IU Northwest includes the receipt of funds earmarked for campus renovation and repairs. Projects, currently in progress or scheduled to start in the near feature, include the renovation of campus restrooms in Hawthorn Hall; HVAC upgrades in Raintree Hall; sewer system construction; and the construction renovation of the former Child Care Center into office space.

IU Northwest reserves were used for the renovation of the RedHawk Cafeteria, which opened on the first day of the fall semester. Complete with a larger grill and refrigerator, the cafeteria has a better design flow and provides students with additional food options.

The Modern Languages Lab was recently renovated providing students with the ability to immerse themselves in foreign languages and cultures to enhance their international studies. The renovated lab, named and dedicated for the late Frank Caucci, Ph.D., was made possible through a generous gift to the IU Northwest campus by Caucci’s daughter, Emmanuelle, his son, Matthew, the Caucci family, and his life partner, Brian A. Bates, J.D.
