JASPER, Ind. – Vincennes University Jasper is sponsoring its 19th

The Vincennes University Jasper Campus is a vital part of Indiana’s
first college, Vincennes University. The Jasper Campus fulfills the
vision of CoHERE, a Dubois County citizens group founded in 1960, that
was dedicated to improving area education and cultural enrichment.
Vincennes University joined as a strong partner, opening a Jasper
location in 1970.
VU Jasper features a beautiful 140-acre campus on the southeast side
of Jasper. Accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, VUJ tuition
and fees rank among the most affordable of all Indiana colleges. In
addition to offering associate degree and certificate programs, VUJ
students can complete a bachelor’s degree online or at the Vincennes Campus.
VU Jasper’s Center for Technology, Innovation and Manufacturing is a
hub for community engagement in local education. It is home to the
Career Advancement Partnership (CAP) program, a major workforce
development initiative between VUJ and local manufacturing companies.
It also houses several programs for the Patoka Valley Career and
Technical Education Cooperative, including a new Automation and
Robotics Academy. In addition to the CTIM, other campus
facilities include the Alvin C. Ruxer Student Center, Arnold F. Habig
Library Learning Center, Administrative Classroom Building, and a
Jasper Campus Classroom Building that holds a state-of-the-art
simulation laboratory for healthcare training. Adjacent to the campus
is the Jasper Arts Center, which includes a 675-seat theater and
visual arts galleries.
The VU Jasper Campus serves thousands of students in Dubois, Spencer,
Martin, Perry, Crawford, Harrison, Pike, Orange, Daviess, Lawrence and
surrounding counties in Indiana.
