The Forum at IUPUI represents a new integrated coordinating structure intended to support learning, Instruction, leadership, faculty professional development and curricular innovation. The Forum connects and supports strategic collaboration across a variety of diverse offices and units whose missions frequently overlap and may operate at cross-purposes. It provides a vehicle for faculty professional development that will be critical for the success of the Institute for Engaged Learning led through the Division of Undergraduate Education. Finally, it provides an opportunity for the free and open exchange of ideas and cultivation of community across all IUPUI faculty. Leadership for units and offices associated with the Forum will engage in monthly meetings of the Academic Affairs Leadership Council chaired by the Chief Academic Officer.
