IPMP is here to support new undergraduate students through their entire first year at IUPUI. We focus on:

  • Getting to know IUPUI
  • Learning about Indianapolis
  • Adjusting to U.S. life and academics

IPMP Teams

Mentors work in teams of 3, and each team supports about 10 new international students. Each team spends a lot of time together and usually become very good friends.

IPMP has great activities all year. The most famous IPMP event is the IPMP Kick-Off in August/September. Get ready for your team to compete against the other IPMP teams in high-speed games!

Other activities include

  • Field trips to local sites, sporting events, and shopping areas
  • Monthly Socials
