To celebrate its 50th anniversary, Faces and Places of IUPUI: Fifty Years in Indianapolis presents the story of the Indiana University—Purdue University Indianapolis campus in a new and unique way. With a focus on the "Fifty Faces of IUPUI," a select group of students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members chosen by the campus, readers will learn how the campus developed out of the Indiana University School of Medicine in 1903 to become Indiana's premier urban public research university. From remarkable figures from the past such as Joseph T. Taylor, who grew up in the Jim Crow South and later became the Founding Dean of the School of Liberal Arts at IUPUI, to current undergraduates from a multitude of backgrounds and studying a range of disciplines, Faces and Places of IUPUI recounts the fascinating people who help make IUPUI a national and international leader in education and research. Using a combination of archival and contemporary photography, Faces and Places of IUPUI captures these stories and weaves them together to represent the university's evolution. By taking readers through the past and present, and leading them toward the future, this volume conveys the spirit of the 50th anniversary, as well as the impact that the IUPUI campus has made in its first 50 years.
