Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is a public research university located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Belonging to the university systems of both Indiana University and Purdue University, it is the result of a merger in 1969 of the Purdue Indianapolis Extension Center (1946) and Indiana University Indianapolis (1916).[1] Located along the White River and Fall Creek it sits upon a peninsula adjacent to downtown Indianapolis.

Among more than 200 degree programs, the urban university hosts the primary campuses for both the Indiana University School of Medicine and the Indiana University School of Dentistry, the only dental school in the state. Also represented among the graduate schools, the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law is one of the only two law schools operated by Indiana University, with the Indiana University Maurer School of Law being the Bloomington equivalent.
