|President Linda L. M. Bennett|
High expectations have guided the development of the University of Southern Indiana from its founding in 1965 to today. Whether in the classroom, laboratory, studio, field, or online, faculty are always seeking to elevate the educational experience for their students. Innovative instructional techniques, a strong commitment to engage with the surrounding community, and a demand for excellence have garnered USI regional and national recognition for excellence in its academic programs.
Perhaps you have seen USI referred to as the university where students gain Knowledge for Life – knowledge that will guide them through a lifetime of personal and professional growth. As we look to the growth and future of the University, we have the potential to elevate, deepen, and enrich the experience of our students and the reputation of this institution. It is through the creative involvement of many USI students, faculty, and staff that we continue to work toward the accomplishment of these important goals.
The University of Southern Indiana is a dynamic campus where we are dedicated to the success of our students. I welcome you to our web site and encourage you to visit our campus soon to explore all the University has to offer. See the many academic and student life opportunities offered at USI. Experience the energy and excitement as we anticipate the future.
