Urban Doctorate Program
The IU School of Education at IUPUI offers a doctorate degree in urban education entirely on the IUPUI campus. The degree is just one of a handful of urban education doctorates in the country, and is focused on preparing researchers to study schools in complex urban environments. Faculty and students in the program conduct community-based research designed in partnership with P-12 schools and community organizations. It is the only urban education doctoral program in the state of Indiana.

The program is a distinctive, research-oriented degree program, and the first of its kind in Indiana. The interdisciplinary focus will prepare scholars who are capable of making significant contributions to improve urban education. The focus is on research addressing the needs of high risk students and other factors that impact student learning. The community-based, collaborative model place researchers in the social context of urban education issues.
