We're so glad you're here!

The newly-minted College of Professional Studies now includes the School of Education, the Department of Public Policy, the Department of Human Services, and the Department of Hospitality and Tourism Management. Together, we believe in positively impacting children, youth, families and communities.

This coincides with the university's transition to Purdue University Fort Wayne. Although our name won't officially change until July 1, 2018, we're excited -- and we can assure you that there's a lot happening behind the scenes as we prepare for the big day.

Be on the lookout for big changes to our website in the coming months!
