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 Wayne students.

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. 

Students in 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.
