Choosing a college is hard for students for many reasons, but it can be equally as hard on the parents. Regardless of your viewpoint—parent, future student, mentor—you want to be assured that students are well taken care of and set up for success. That starts with the university's faculty.
Take it from former IUPUI students: the sports management faculty here are among the best in the business. They care for students and genuinely want them to succeed during their time at IUPUI and beyond.
“The faculty in the TESM [tourism, event, and sport management] department were absolutely amazing,” sports management alum Kyle Mechelin said. “Every one of the faculty members genuinely cares about the success of their students and are incredible resources to building connections in the industry and learning.”
Joshua Mears added to that by saying, “All of the faculty for TESM made me feel like they cared about each person individually. The professionalism and credibility that they all had was also amazing.”
Many programs and universities can claim the same from their faculty, but Joshua White didn’t have these experiences with faculty until transferring to IUPUI.
“I have been to two other universities and there is absolutely no comparison,” White said. “The second day of class every professor knew my name, not one knew my name the entire time at the other universities.”
Not only do the professors genuinely want the best for their students, but they have the industry experience, connections, and skillset to make sure they succeed.
