“I am so excited to join UIndy at a time when we are positioned for tremendous growth. Just as Indianapolis is moving forward, so too is the University of Indianapolis moving forward with it,” Dr. Singh said. “Helping our students discover their potential and supporting them in their endeavors is one of our most important goals. My charge is to make sure that we achieve this by increasing opportunities for them through collaborative participation; both within our campus community, but just as importantly, in how we engage with the city and beyond. Our highly engaged faculty, staff, and students will be our greatest asset moving forward. I am really looking forward to working closely with our alumni and other supporters to engage them fully with our vision and plans.”
