In June 2017,
the Indiana University Board of Trustees and the Purdue University Board of
Trustees approved agreements to realign the Indiana
University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) campus. This realignment
creates two separate universities: Indiana University (IU) Fort Wayne and
Purdue University Fort Wayne. Both universities will be located on the current
Fort Wayne campus and will share building space. The agreements allow for a
one-year transition period, with the realignment taking effect on July 1, 2018.
IU Fort Wayne
will manage the health science programs—dentistry, nursing, medical imaging and
social work—on the Fort Wayne campus, including admission to those programs.
Purdue University Fort Wayne will oversee all other programs on campus, as well
as provide administrative services and general education classes to IU Fort
As part of
the realignment, the Indiana University School of Dentistry will administer and
oversee the curriculum and academic affairs of the Fort Wayne dental programs:
dental hygiene, dental assisting and dental technology.
these dental programs will receive a world-renowned education with
opportunities to take part in community-based research, get hands-on experience
with modern digital equipment and receive real-world experience in the IU Fort Wayne
full-service dental hygiene clinic.
