Apply knowledge. Make a difference.
Indiana State University forms lasting partnerships with business and industry in the community, the nation and the world at large. These added opportunities for involvement and experience form the solid foundation you need to succeed.
Our students routinely take knowledge they've gained and put it to work on meaningful, life-changing projects, such as:
- Our partnership with Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, where students have acquired necessary training to work as child-life specialists -- healthcare professionals who help children and their parents cope with the challenges of being hospitalized.
- Our biomechanics students conducting research alongside our expert faculty for the U.S. Olympic Committee and the U.S. Track & Field team to adapt training techniques for elite hurdlers.
- Family and consumer science students have tested bakeware from a local manufacturer against competitors¹ products and produced data necessary to secure a patent.
