Marian University is a Catholic university:


  • Dedicated to excellent teaching and learning in the Franciscan and liberal arts traditions;
  • Welcoming students of all faith traditions;
  • Offering an educational experience framed within the context of the Franciscan values of dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship, informed by prayer;
  • Tracing its roots to 1851 and the teaching mission of the Sisters of St. Francis in Oldenburg, with the college moving to Indianapolis in 1937.


        Marian University is located in the heart of Indianapolis, just 10 minutes from the city’s downtown government and entertainment center, Broad Ripple Village, Eagle Creek Park, and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, providing access to internships and other opportunities for students.

        More than 2,700 students from across the United States and around the world attend Marian. Innovative programs like the accelerated M.A. in Teaching and RN-BSN fast-track option in nursing give graduates a competitive edge.  In 2013 Marian University welcomed the inaugural class of its new medical school.

        Students have many opportunities to get involved, develop leadership skills, and explore new interests through numerous organizations, including student government, show choir, student theatre, and intramural athletics.

        The Marian University Knights belong to the NAIA and the Mid-Central Conference.  The Knights cycling team—26-time national champions—competes as a member of the National Champions in Collegiate Track Cycling. The football team is a member of the Mid-States Football Association, competing in the Mideast League.  In 2012 the Knights captured their first National Football Championship.
