About Martin University
Martin University is a private, not-for-profit, liberal arts institution that prides itself in providing a student-centered environment. The University offers both theoretical and experiential learning experiences.
Marking its 40th year in 2017, Martin University is Indiana’s only Predominantly Black Institution of higher education. It is steeped in a history of service and open to a diverse population of students.
Rev. Father Boniface Hardin, O.S.B. and Sister Jane Schilling founded Martin University in 1977 in honor of two Martins - The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and St. Martin de Porres, who served the poor in Peru in the 16th and 17th centuries and became the first bi-racial Catholic saint.
