Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) is the third-largest university in Indiana. Created in 1969, IUPUI combined Indiana University’s professional schools and its undergraduate downtown Indianapolis campus with Purdue’s science, engineering, and technology programs in the city. IUPUI—The Making of an Urban University is the first comprehensive history of the school, its origins, growth, and development, and the creation of the current urban campus. It details the relationship between the university and the city during a period of dramatic growth for both. Ralph D. Gray examines the leadership of the university’s three chancellors and explores student life at a "commuter campus" and the gradual development of its sports program. He looks at the school’s many centers of academic excellence, including medicine and biotechnology, and important enterprises such as the Center on Philanthropy and the service center for Internet 2, which have positioned the university to play a major role in the future of the state.
