It’s better for our community.
Indianapolis is our classroom, and our efforts to forge deep community partnerships that provide unparalleled experiences for student learning and career preparation have never been stronger. Sport and event management students, for example, are immersed in community-based learning from the first day of classes until they graduate, working with world-class sport and event facilities. Through our institutes, students are providing innovative solutions to industry partners. They graduate with a career advantage as a result. On the sciences side, our students are within walking distance of unique clinical experiences that position them for future professional success.
Combined, our students are working with 400-plus community and clinical partners. They invest more than 114,000 hours annually in the Indianapolis community conducting research, honing their practice, fulfilling internships, and volunteering. They do this through classes, clubs, institutes, clinical rotations, and well-established service-learning programs.
Our community extends beyond our borders. Students participate in study abroad opportunities in the Caribbean as well as Europe. SHHS faculty are cultivating international opportunities in Europe, Africa, and China, which will expand research, teaching, and learning.
