Marian University operates the Center for School and Community Success

Center for School and Community Success

Marian University has provided professional educational services for a number of years, helping teachers and school administrators deliver high-quality educational programs for Hoosier children.

In 2017, INIschools (originally created by Goodwill Education Initiatives, Inc.) became part of The Educators College at Marian University. The acquisition enables us to expand our growing efforts to support K-12 schools throughout Indianapolis and central Indiana.
