Indiana Youth Programs on Campus

Through the Indiana Youth Programs on Campus (IYPC) initiative, made available by Lilly Endowment Inc., IWU seeks to increase opportunities for Indiana youth to participate in learning experiences on campus in order to explore how college can be part of their future.

IWU’s strategy for bringing Indiana youth to the IWU-Marion campus has two prongs: Wildcat Academic Youth Programs and the Wildcat Incubator.
