University Website:  www.martin.edu

Martin University in Indianapolis, Indiana, was founded by Rev. Fr. Boniface Hardin in 1977. The University's original mission to serve low-income, minority, and adult learners has not changed, although students from all backgrounds have always been welcome.

Martin University employs a learning method known as andragogy, as opposed to pedagogy, where it involves adult learners in the learning process, encouraging them to bring their life and work experiences into classroom discussions.

The original campus was at 35th Street. and College Ave. It moved to its current location on Avondale Place in the Martindale-Brightwood neighborhood in 1987. Housed initially in a former church and school, the campus grew to include many other structures in the immediate area. Dramatic changes have taken place recently. A $10 million Educational Center and adjoining Peace Garden opened in the summer of 2001. The brick-and-stone Educational Center contains nine classrooms; faculty and staff offices; an 800-seat Gathertorium; a two-story, glass-and-steel globe; a Frederick Douglass Room; student and staff lounges; and a smoking-cessation center.

Martin University offers 14 different undergraduate degrees along with two masters degrees. It is the only predominantly African-American university in Indiana. Curiously though, it has been excluded from designation as an Historically Black College or University (HBCU) because it was founded after the cut off date of 1964.

Popular undergraduate degree programs at the university include Accounting, Addiction Counseling, Business Administration, Biology, Chemistry, Early Childhood Education, Environmental Science, Psychology, Religious Studies, Sociology, Criminal Justice and Liberal Arts. Its two graduate degrees are in Urban Ministries and Community Psychology. The university also has special programs in Long-Term Care and Medical Coding. Currently, the average tuition cost for Martin University is approximately $13,200 annually, although 59% of the student body receive financial aid help in the average amount of $2,600.
