SPEA Students Major in Making a Difference!

SPEA students learn how to work in government, nonprofit and business roles to make positive changes in their communities, their states, their countries and the world—and we want you to meet them! SPEA prepares students to work in the fields of Management, Criminal Justice, Public Safety Management, Civic Leadership, Media and Public Affairs, Policy Studies, and Sustainability Management and Policy.

Here are some ways to work with us:

  • SPEA Careers and Internships is a database of available opportunities for our students. We want to hear about your needs! And we’ll connect you with students and alumni who may be a fit.
  • Events. SPEA offers employers a number of events during the years when you can meet with our students and alumni,  including Career Exploration Trips to Indianapolis, Denver, Chicago, and Washington, D.C.
  • Career Expos. SPEA hosts an annual Public Safety Career Day in the Fall during IUPUI Career Week, as well as the IUPUI Nonprofit Expo in the Spring. These are great times to chat informally with students and alumni.
