The 130-acre campus of Vincennes University Jasper is located on a quiet rustic setting south of Jasper on Indiana Highway 162.
Vincennes University Jasper was introduced cooperatively by Vincennes University and COHERE, Inc (Committee on Higher Education and Related Events) in February 1970. COHERE, Inc. was a Dubois County citizens action group dedicated to the improvement of education and cultural enrichment for the area. It was founded in 1960 and dissolved in 1978, having fulfilled its original mission.
In September 1970 Vincennes University Jasper opened its doors to students in temporary, rented facilities in downtown Jasper. Since then, the Jasper campus has served thousands of students in Dubois, Spencer, Martin, Perry, Crawford, Harrison, Pike, Orange, and Lawrence counties in Indiana. New buildings emerged and additional degrees have been added since this early event.
