INDIANAPOLIS (WLFI) — Saint Joseph's College at Marian University is ready to use its earn and learn model at its new school.
July 8th is the opening date for what's being called St. Joe Indy.
As we previously reported Saint Joe's suspended operations in 2017 due to millions of dollars of debt and its accreditation was on the line.
The new St. Joe Indy will offer two degrees; a liberal arts degree and a business degree.
Fifty students are enrolled for the first semester.
They will earn a degree in 22 months and earn an income along the way.
The executive director said the school wants to play a role in fixing workforce shortages.
"Every employer partner we bring on is a part of the conversation," said Jeffrey Jourdan. "We do see ourselves as a talent pipeline, a feeder of talent to industry and to these employer partners."
St. Joe will eventually have 300 to 400 students enrolled.
It will have 30 employer partners that will help with placement of students.
Some of those include One America, Community Health and Allison Transmission.
