Indiana University founded the School of Public and Environmental Affairs (SPEA) nearly 40 years ago to prepare students to address the issues of modern society in ways that more traditional schools overlooked. At SPEA, people learn how to work in government, nonprofit and business roles to make positive changes in their communities, their states, their countries and the world.
SPEA graduates lead the organizations that make and enforce laws, keep communities livable and safe, shape smart public policy, protect the planet and help our fellow citizens. Through the combined study of civic leadership, management, policy studies, media and public affairs, criminal justice and public safety, SPEA students develop both the practical and philosophical skills that prepare them to develop solutions to society's problems. SPEA is proud to be part of Indiana University, located on the busy IUPUI campus in the heart of downtown Indianapolis.
