    School Overview

    Established in 1964, Indiana University–Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) is the largest university in northeast Indiana. After many years of offering courses at separate locations in Fort Wayne, Indiana University and Purdue University opened the combined campus of IPFW in 1964. The 1970s were a time of rapid growth, accompanied by the formal merger of the campus administration in 1975.

    IPFW combines challenging academics with a focus on student success across more than 200 Indiana University and Purdue University degree programs. Several online bachelor's degree programs are available, as well as an online graduate nursing program and online certificates.
