    IUPUI Max Kade German-American Center

    The Max Kade Foundation, named after the prominent German-American business man whose product Pertussin is known throughout the country, provided a large grant to the German Department of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis to develop a research center for German-American Studies. The Center coordinates German Studies and German-American Studies with faculty in other departments of the University. The Center provides the Indianapolis community, the state of Indiana, and the eastern area of the Mid-West with a center for conducting research into its German-American history and heritage. The Center's purpose is to support such research and the dissemination of its results. Through the German Department at IUPUI, the Center coordinates lectures, exhibits, performances, conferences, seminars and workshops, with both historical and contemporary dimensions.

The Cultural Center is home to film series, lectures, workshops, conferences, after-school German classes for children, and a variety of other activities.
