In a region replete with talent and resources, Uplanders—from students to visionaries, artisans to entrepreneurs—are competitive and thriving here and worldwide. Uplands families, a dedicated workforce, and a tide of trailblazers call our 11 counties home. Home of industry and determination, innovation and creativity, good friends and reliable neighbors. Our home is Uplands Made.
Flourishing families, skilled workers, and an abundance of natural resources: every day in the Uplands is a reminder of the depth of beauty here, from our popular parks and welcoming towns to our thriving industries, urban areas, and cultural centers. All those who call the Uplands home experience a high quality of work life and family life, building relationships that go deep and encountering opportunities that make each of us better, stronger, and more prosperous. We capitalize on the full potential of our people and places to diversify our economy and unleash opportunities for current and future generations.
Beginning in 2017, we began a regional brand identification effort to define not only the story of our region, but our name as well. Originally Southwest Central Indiana, we arrived at a new name, Indiana Uplands, descriptive of the unique geologic and economic facets of our 11 counties. Like our hills and forests that reach to the heights, Indiana Uplands is a region on the rise. Uplanders are hardworking and brilliant entrepreneurs, leaders, and skilled workers, growing world-shaping ideas into remarkable products and thriving businesses. Indiana Uplands is a peak destination for innovation, education, and opportunities that lift the quality of life for all.
