Indianapolis, Ind. -- Martin University announced today its partnership with Save Our Veterans, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides skills training, educational opportunities, and paths to employment and housing.

This collaboration will provide training programs in welding, and the opportunity for program participants to complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management.
