Foundations of Excellence Transfer Focus

Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) has embarked on its first self-study to better understand the way it facilitates the transfer student experience. Institutional Research and Decision Support (IRDS) is committed to providing data reports and information to support this initiative.

Based on its commitment to transfer students and nationally recognized success in enhancing students’ first-year experience—for which the campus has been honored by U.S. News & World Report for 13 consecutive years—IUPUI was selected to participate in the Foundations of Excellence Transfer Focus project sponsored by the John N. Gardner Institute for Excellence in Undergraduate Education.

The Foundations of Excellence initiative will engage IUPUI transfer students, faculty, and staff in honest, candid, and meaningful discussions about how to improve the transfer experience.
