Several of Marian University Academy for Teaching and Learning Leadership and School of Education and Exercise Science programs have earned national recognition, including:

“Education for all children in the early years is crucial to lifelong success and we are gratified that our programs serve as national models of excellence,” said Lindan Hill, Ph.D., assistant vice president and director of the Academy for Teaching and Learning Leadership.

With Marian University students teaching and training in more than 140 central Indiana K-12 schools, there is little doubt that they are making an impact.

While these national rankings come from different education associations, each have rigorous qualifications and are difficult to obtain.

“These recognitions would not be possible without the hard work and dedication of our talented faculty. They inspire and train our education students to make a real difference in Indiana P-12 school settings,” said Diana Cheshire, Ph.D., dean of the School of Education and Exercise Science. “These recognitions further indicate the quality of our education programs at Marian University. From our university leadership down to our outstanding education candidates and graduates, it is apparent that quality education is vital to the mission and history of this institution.”
