Located at Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), the Polis Center is an academic research center that focuses on urban and urban-related issues. Their goal is to "to develop knowledge that will serve the common good and invigorate the sense of community in this city and beyond." To this end, they have placed on the site a great deal of material about their numerous research and outreach projects. Sections of the site are devoted to work that examines the intersection between religion and urban culture, intensive community research, and the different support services they provide. Other compelling information includes material on their various training sessions, which may be of great interest to persons in the Indianapolis area seeking to expand their own knowledge base. Finally, there is also a "What's New" section that tells about upcoming public events sponsored by the Center.
