In recent years, IUPUI has steadily acquired a considerable national reputation as an up-and-coming university. Some of the reasons for this recognition include the RISE Initiative and the large number of innovative degree programs recently started at IUPUI based on campus strengths and the priorities of the city of Indianapolis. Some specific degrees are in Motorsports Engineering, Sports Journalism, Music Technology, Event Tourism, Philanthropy, Art Therapy, and Public Health. RISE activities and the new programs open additional internship opportunities and transcriptable learning experiences for our students.
