The Department of Journalism and Public Relations at IUPUI hosts a chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. The group provides an opportunity for students to network with area professionals, stage fundraisers and bring awareness of First Amendment and other issues to campus.

In past years, SPJ at IUPUI has hosted a First Amendment festival to bring awareness of rights to free speech and free press, Slice and Dice workshops which brought professionals to campus to critique student work, and an all-day workshop for local high school students. Several SPJ members also had the opportunity to take a trip to Las Vegas for the national conference where they attended workshops and networked with professionals in the journalism field.
