Faculty accessibility

Speaking of faculty, one of the SHHS hallmarks is faculty accessibility. Here, accessibility is more than a buzzword; it's a promise. Your student isn't lost in the crowd; they are recognized by name by faculty who care about their individual success. Students receive attention similar to a private school, but at a public-school price. And, all students are welcome.

Caring campus community

Beyond caring faculty, it starts with good advising. Your student can find advising staff in the office five days a week, ready to assist. If a virtual visit is their preference, those also are available.

SHHS advising

SHHS also has its own health & wellness coordinator who can direct your student to on-campus resources. Campus counseling and medical services also are available as needs arrive. As a bonus, tuition is banded at IU Indianapolis, meaning your student can likely add on some physical activity courses to help them mitigate stress, make friends, and stay healthy—already included in tuition. Courses are offered for every fitness level and include meditation and yoga. Search HPER-E 100 for course ideas to share with your student. 

Finding a place where we belong is important to every individual, including your student.
