The Institution

Founded in 1969, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis, an urban institution, came into being when the leaders of Indiana University and Purdue University decided, in cooperation with their counterparts in state government, to blend their respective Indianapolis programs into a single university. Among the units of the University is the Indiana University Medical Center, the nation's second largest such facility and the Purdue School of Engineering and Technology, as well as 21 other schools rendering it Indiana's third largest and most comprehensive university.

The University's webpages currently list no courses in the area of Polish Studies, or ones bearing on Poland-related matter. However, as detailed below, a couple of the faculty members have Poland-related interests, while others have studied and received degrees at Polish institutions of higher education.
