Martin University Continues Unique Mission and Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Martin University in Indianapolis, IN is celebrating the 40th anniversary of its founding in 1977 with several events planned this year.  
Martin University was founded and remains focused on a mission to serve low-income, minority, and adult learners.  The original campus was located at 35th Street and College Avenue in Indianapolis. The institution then moved to its current location on North Sherman Drive in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood in 1987 where it occupied buildings once used by St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church and Elementary School.

The curriculum has expanded over time and Martin U will open a School of Education this fall with a unique focus on preparing teachers for schools in urban neighborhoods,
