An Indianapolis-based national education nonprofit has moved into new headquarters in the heart of the city’s downtown. Strada Education Network says the space in Market Tower will house its 80 Indy-based employees and provide meeting space for partner organizations.
Strada cites its mission as strengthening pathways between education and employment through its "Completion With a Purpose" platform. The organization specifically focuses on low-income students and the tens of millions of Americans who don’t have a post-high school degree.
"Network is the most important part of our name – it is the collective relationships, partnerships and solutions across Strada that drive our mission forward," said Strada President and Chief Executive Officer William D. Hansen in a statement. "We designed our new space to enable the vision, collaboration, innovation and transparency that is essential to our work. Proximity to the airport was also a high priority, as was being part of a vibrant and thriving business, civic and cultural center. We are thrilled to call downtown Indianapolis home."
The organization plans a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house December 6.
