Synthesis of the Purdue University System and Indiana University System

IPFW's degrees are awarded by either Purdue University or Indiana University on a program-by-program basis. IPFW's schools and academic divisions are not each identified specifically as Indiana University units or as Purdue University units. Through an agreement between the Indiana University and Purdue University systems, most of IPFW's university services are administratively operated through the Purdue University system's budget, although the medical programs and the library are administered through Indiana University system's budget. Architecturally, IPFW buildings generally feature brown or tan brick as a variation on Purdue West Lafayette's red brick. Note that all of this is in contrast to IPFW's sibling university, IUPUI, which is a core campus of the Indiana University System, whose university services are administratively operated through the Indiana University system, whose schools and academic divisions are each strongly identified by name as IU or Purdue aligned, and whose buildings generally feature the Indiana limestone that Indiana University Bloomington's buildings feature.

History

IPFW was established via the 1964 merger of:
Indiana University Fort Wayne Extension Established 1917
Purdue University Fort Wayne Extension Established 1947
plus the 1976 merger with:
Fort Wayne Art Insititute Established 1897

In 1917, Indiana University started offering courses in downtown Fort Wayne to 142 students in 12 courses. At a separate location in downtown Fort Wayne, Purdue University permanently established the Purdue University Center in 1947 to provide a site in Fort Wayne for students to begin their undergraduate studies prior to transferring to the West Lafayette main campus to complete their degree. 1917 (MCMXVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar (see link for calendar) or a common year starting on Tuesday of the 13-day slower Julian calendar. ... 1947 (MCMXLVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will take you to calendar). ... 1897 was a common year starting on Friday (see link for calendar). ... 1917 (MCMXVII) was a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar (see link for calendar) or a common year starting on Tuesday of the 13-day slower Julian calendar. ... 1947 (MCMXLVII) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will take you to calendar). ...


Under the direction of Purdue University president Frederick Hovde, Indiana University President Herman Wells, IU trustee John Hastings, and Purdue Trustee Alfred Kettler, Sr., the Indiana University and Purdue University extension centers began merging in 1958 via the formation of the Indiana Purdue Foundation. To serve the extension centers' now combined mission in Fort Wayne, the Indiana Purdue Foundation acquired during the late 1950s a 99-year lease on existing farmland owned by Allen County—the Indiana county containing Fort Wayne—and purchased adjacent private farms to form a total of 216 acres at the then-suburban northeastern edge of Fort Wayne on the eastern bank of the Saint Joseph River. The new Indiana University—Purdue University Fort Wayne campus opened on September 17, 1964 following nearly two years of construction that began on October 18, 1962. That first building was then known as the Education Building, but is now renamed Kettler Hall in honor of founder Alfred Kettler, Sr., whose vision and passion for an IPFW during the 1950s made IPFW possible and likewise inspired the formation of IUPUI in Indianapolis, Indiana a decade later. IPFW awarded its first four-year degree in 1968 after awarding two-year degrees through the IU Fort Wayne extension center prior to the formation of the joint IPFW campus.

In 1976 the Indiana General Assembly approved the merger of the Fort Wayne Art Institute with IPFW. The Fort Wayne Art Institute was founded in 1897 as the Fort Wayne Art School. Until 1991 the Fort Wayne Art Institute and resulting academic unit within IPFW maintained a small campus in downtown Fort Wayne. In 1991 that downtown campus was closed and the School of Fine and Performing Arts moved to their new building on the IPFW campus.


In 1988, a coalition comprised of the then Lincoln National Corporation under the direction of Ian Rolland and the Foellinger Foundation purchased an additional 304 acres on the west bank of the Saint Joseph River to bring IPFW's total land to 520 acres. Lincoln Financial is a United States financial advice corporation. ...


IPFW is now a 565-acre campus on both sides of the Saint Joseph River with 13 educational buildings plus three more planned for construction by 2009, plus student residence halls and various other athletic facilities and parking structures.
