About Indiana University East, Indiana, USA

Indiana University East is a regional campus in the Indiana University system located in Richmond, Indiana. It is colloquially known as IU East. The local campus is four buildings on 174 acres and has an enrollment of 4573 students (fall 2014). It was established in 1971 as an extension of Earlham College. IU East offers four-year degree programs in areas of Business & Economics, Education, Humanities & Social Sciences, Natural Science & Mathematics, Informatics, General Studies, Nursing, and Social Work. There are also off-campus degree programs in Newcastle, Lawrenceburg, and Connersville, as well as online degree completion programs. The University also offers master's degrees in several areas. The University hosts men's and women's sports teams known as the Red Wolves.

Indiana University East grew out of an extension established at Earlham College that was operated cooperatively by Earlham and Indiana University. In 1967, the arrangement was expanded to include Purdue and Ball State Universities and the extension became the Eastern Indiana Center of Earlham College. Whitewater Hall opened in 1976 as the first of four buildings. This was followed by Hayes Hall in 1992, Middlefork Hall in 1995 (renamed Tom Raper Hall in 2009) and Springwood hall in 1999.

  • Additionally, the IU East Henry County Danielson Learning Center in Newcastle was dedicated in May 1999 to serve the citizens of Henry County, Indiana. IU East offers degree programs off-campus at the Ivy Tech Community College in Lawrenceburg Riverfront Campus and in Connersville, Indiana.
  • Recent Chancellors include David Fulton, Dr. Nassar Paydar, Larry Richards (interim), and Kathryn Cruz-Uribe (current).
  • Since awarding its first bachelor’s degrees in 1977, IU East has expanded its academic portfolio to include 60 bachelor’s degree options and selected master’s degrees.
