New Base for Foundation, Alumni Relations

The historic Williamson Center at 340 W. Michigan St.

Two organizations that link IUPUI with both campus alumni and the central Indiana community have a new home on Indianapolis’s Downtown Canal.

IU Foundation Indianapolis and IUPUI’s Office of Alumni Relations are now headquartered in the historic Williamson Center at 340 W. Michigan St. The building previously was the home of Indiana Landmarks, which sold it to the Foundation in 2011 when Indiana Landmarks relocated to another downtown Indy facility.

The Williamson Center is an 1879 house that was scheduled for demolition until Indiana Landmarks restored it and made the building its state headquarters. The building is well positioned geographically to help both organizations serve their core constituencies as well as IUPUI’s mission of being a dynamic, vibrant part of civic life in Indianapolis.
