CITY LIFE Indianapolis, also known as “Indy,” is the second largest city in the Midwestern U.S. and home to nearly 1 million people. Known as the “Crossroads of America,” Indianapolis is within a few hours driving distance from several other cities such as Chicago. A diverse economy makes Indy one of Forbes’ top 10 U.S. cities for business, especially in the tech, finance and healthcare sectors. In the next five years, the city expects to add 45,000 new jobs, thanks in large part to anchor corporations such as Eli Lilly (pharmaceuticals), RollsRoyce, Salesforce (IT & marketing) and Cummins (engineering & manufacturing). Indianapolis residents benefit from a wealth of recreational and professional opportunities in a relatively affordable and uncongested environment; thus, the city ranks as one of the nation’s top 3 most livable urban areas. With an average temperature of 29 C, July is the warmest month in Indianapolis; January is the coolest month with an average temperature of -7 C.

ACADEMIC & CAREER SUPPORT
PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION UIndy’s Professional Edge Center helps students at all stages of their education and from all academic majors-even those undecided about a major—identify career pathways, find internships, apply to graduate schools and prepare for the job-search process. The center hosts over 60 programs per year such as career fairs, etiquette dinners and networking events which help students develop professional communications skills and then use these skills to make connections with leaders in their industry and with potential employers. The Professional Edge Center also oversees the Handshake job portal which makes campus employment and internship opportunities available to international students.
STUDENT RESEARCH No matter what their field of study, UIndy students are encouraged to conduct research and present their findings in academic journals and at professional conferences.
REAL PROJECTS FOR REAL CLIENTS
Through class projects and student-run companies, UIndy students work to solve problems faced by companies in their industry. One beneficiary is Indianapolis-based technology consulting firm netlogx, one of the city’s fastest-growing companies. When netlogx’ founders got the idea to expand their operation to the United Kingdom, they sought input from external consultants—students in UIndy’s junior-level international marketing course. After conducting market research for much of the semester, the student teams formally presented their findings and strategies to company representatives. After reviewing the students’ proposals, the company founder reflected, “I think we really got some great input from the teams that we can definitely move on with and start to leverage.”
Each year UIndy hosts several well-known speakers such as Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of the Hayden Planetarium in New York City and celebrity astrophysicist. Dr. Tyson spoke to a sold-out audience and also met personally with a small group of students selected based on essays they had written. Known for his entertaining way of making space and science accessible to everyone, Dr. Tyson has written 10 books, served on presidential space commissions, and received 18 honorary degrees. He also launched the acclaimed television series “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.”

A great example is Reed McKinney, a biology and chemistry major, who got hands-on experience as a junior doing research that could potentially make our technology faster and more efficient than ever. Reed was among a group of undergraduate students who, along with Dr. Brad Neal of the Chemistry department, undertook a project creating small molecules and studying their properties with the goal of eventually producing cheaper, more efficient components for electrical devices like cell phones, tablets, laptops, and anything else that runs on electricity. “The students are teaching themselves,” Dr. Neal said. “We told them: Learn how the instrument works, learn how to acquire the data, learn how to interpret the data, and tell us an interesting story about what you’ve learned.” It remains to be seen whether this research will produce any landmark discoveries, but the process—including the all-important step of presenting one’s self and one’s work to others—will be invaluable to the students as they apply for graduate school or launch professional careers, Dr. Neal says. In essence, they are learning how to brand themselves as scientists, with specific research interests and hands-on proficiency.
