Welcome to the University of Southern Indiana! We hope you will spend time perusing our College Portrait site which provides information on our 70 undergraduate degree options and a dozen graduate degree programs. Faculty members across these programs are dedicated to the success of students, and you will find many opportunities to apply what you learn to benefit organizations in our community, across the state, and in national and international settings.

The University of Southern Indiana is a regionally responsive, needs-driven, comprehensive public university in the model of the "new American college." Emphasizing teaching and interaction between faculty and students, the University favors need-based applied research rather than basic research, and is responsive to community needs. The University of Southern Indiana seeks to support education, social and economic growth, and civic and cultural awareness in southwestern Indiana and is devoted primarily to preparing students to live wisely.
