It was in the summer of 1977 that Indiana University-Northwest (IUN) opened its doors to the students of Gary, Indiana. With its motto “Per Ardua Ad Astra” (Through Adversity to the Stars), IUN has since become a beacon of progress and inspiration in the region.
The university is located in the heart of Gary, Indiana and it offers an array of educational opportunities to its students. From master's degrees to associate's degrees, IUN provides a diverse curriculum that caters to many different kinds of learners. Its four main academic schools—Health and Human Services, Business and Economics, Arts and Sciences, and Education—ensure that all students have access to the courses they need to reach their higher-education goals.
In addition to its impressive academic offerings, IUN also provides a number of extracurricular activities for students. The university has a thriving student life with clubs, organizations, sports teams, and more. Whether you’re interested in joining an intramural sport or becoming a part of one of the multicultural student organizations, IUN is sure to have something for you.
