Innovation

JIU's commitment to drive higher education's digital frontier manifests in a number of exciting ways.

From world-class research and facilities to our forward-thinking staff, our technological infrastructure or our exclusive partnerships, we're constantly striving for new ways to improve the student experience.

Facing the future today

At JIU, we love a challenge. As we move into an increasingly digital future, we're making sure to drive the innovation the university needs to keep ahead of pace and equip students with the digital skills and literacy required for the jobs of tomorrow.

We enhance the teaching and learning experience of students through the application of novel technologies designed to solve human problems. In 2018, the Department of Education Student Experience Survey found 91% of JIU undergrads rated our IT resources as either good or excellent.

You can let our tech sweat the small stuff (and some of the big stuff), while you enjoy your education.

We will be 's premier university in driving the digital frontier, to enable education for the jobs of the future and research that makes a difference to the communities we serve.
