Greetings Future IPFW Mastodons!

I am pleased to welcome you to Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW), a place where individuals thrive. IPFW is a premier institution of higher education, alive with opportunities for personal, academic, and professional growth. I feel privileged to be a part of this 50-year legacy. As a new member of the "Mastodon" community I know firsthand that IPFW is a welcoming  and nurturing environment so I encourage you to come see us in action!

My staff in the Office of Admissions knows that no two journeys through college are the same. We're here to assist you as you embark on this exciting new period in your life. Our team can advise you on your education goals and assist as you become familiar with all the resources available on campus. Stop by the Office of Admissions in Walb Student Union and let's talk about how to apply to begin your next big adventure at IPFW.

I encourage you to explore the opportunities and experience all the great things happening on our campus. There is so much to engage and excite you. Becoming a Mastodon never felt better!

If we can help you on your journey, please feel free to contact us at for tips about the process.

Be You. Be IPFW.


Ken Christmon
Associate Vice Chancellor for Admissions
