Biographical / Historical

Indiana University and Purdue University began offering extension courses in Columbus in 1941 and 1942 respectively. When IUPUI was created in 1969, university officials agreed that programs in Columbus would be administered by IUPUI. IUPUI Columbus Center was opened in 1970. As the campus expanded, the name changed to IUPUI Columbus, and still later IUPU Columbus. The campus gained its own director in 1976. In 1995 Paul R. Bippen, campus director since 1977, was named as Columbus’ first campus dean.
