Community Involvement

IPFW – An Integral Part of the Fort Wayne Community

More than a source of higher education, IPFW is a kaleidoscope of theatre, music, art, dance, sports, continuing education opportunities, and community resources.

Every year, IPFW hosts nearly 2,500 free events, from lectures and artistic performances to comedians and cook-outs. Through the Omnibus Lecture Series, local audiences experience nationally acclaimed lectures and performances, such as Hal Holbrook’s legendary “Mark Twain Tonight!”

Sold-out crowds of music and theatre lovers thrill to the rich programs at the Rhinehart Music Center and the Williams Theatre, while art aficionados indulge in the continually changing exhibits at the Visual Arts Gallery.

Sports fans love watching their favorite IPFW teams compete in 14 NCAA Division I sports, and take pride in knowing that IPFW produced two Olympic athletes in men’s volleyball.

Come and enjoy our melting pot of resources to educate the mind and stimulate the spirit. Find your place here at IPFW, and get involved. Endless opportunities await you!
