HBCUs in Indiana?

Could someone tell me if Indiana has any HBCUs? I'm trying to stay relatively close to home for college, but I'm super interested in attending an HBCU if possible. If there are any, a bit of insight into their programs and campus life would be amazing!

Hi there! It's wonderful to hear about your interest in HBCUs. Indiana is home to one HBCU, Martin University in Indianapolis. As an urban institution, Martin University has a strong commitment to diversity and providing educational opportunities to minority communities, with a particular focus on adult learners.

The University offers a variety of programs spanning from business to psychology, and from criminal justice to health sciences. While it may not have the same range of offerings or the historical legacy as some of the larger, more well-known HBCUs in other states, it does provide a close-knit community and personalized educational experience.

Campus life at smaller universities like Martin can be quite rewarding with a strong sense of fellowship among students and faculty. If you're looking to stay close to home and desire the HBCU experience, it's definitely worth checking out! I always encourage students to visit, if possible, to get a feel for the campus atmosphere. Good luck with your college search!
