The Polis Center is physically moving from its longtime home on Waterway Boulevard to the School of Informatics and Computing (SoIC) Sept. 8-10. Polis officially moved from the School of Liberal Arts to SoIC as of July 1, which positions IUPUI to serve constituencies more effectively in community-based information and analysis, enhances IUPUI’s leadership and application of technology in collaborative and creative solutions for healthier and more resilient communities, and extends IUPUI’s long tradition of service to Indianapolis and Central Indiana. Polis will remain community facing, collaborating with a wide range of organizations in order to define, measure, and improve community health, well-being, and resiliency. Aligning the Polis Center with the School of Informatics and Computing creates a direct connection to current and emerging fields in bioinformatics, data science, informatics, and health information management. The move also allows for expanded education opportunities such as a new crisis informatics program, building on the school’s expertise in data science and the center’s existing education programs in disaster management and data literacy. Its new address is IU School of Informatics and Computing-IUPUI, 535 W. Michigan Street, Indianapolis, IN 46202.
