The Higher Education Scene in Indiana

Home to the University of Notre Dame and Purdue University, the state of Indiana has a superior reputation for both private and public schools. The Indiana Department of Education lists ninety-five accredited universities and colleges on their web site. This list includes traditional 2-year and 4-year schools located all over the state. Despite having an abundance of schools to choose from many students in Indiana live in rural areas and need a more convenient way to attend school. Indiana has done an excellent job of creating online programs for their nontraditional Hoosiers through their public schools, and by allowing accredited, private online schools to make inroads in the state.

Fast Company in a Growing Indiana

The Indianapolis 500 isn’t the only speedy place in Indiana – metropolitan areas in Indiana are growing rapidly. In fact, the Indianapolis metro area is the 20th fastest growing county in the United States. Overall the population in Indiana will grow 15% in the next 30 years. That means the state will need a well-educated generation of doctors, teachers, social workers, computer scientists, etc. to see the state through the changes to come. They are well prepared to meet that need and provide a first rate education to anyone who wants to matriculate in the Hoosier state!
