Indiana Tech president Karl W. Einolf, Ph.D., and Indiana State Police superintendent Douglas G. Carter signed an agreement today to make Indiana Tech a preferred education partner of the Indiana State Police.

As the primary tenet of the agreement, Indiana Tech will provide corporate scholarships to current and former Indiana State Police troopers, current and former ISP staff members and all spouses who wish to take undergraduate and graduate classes through the university’s College of Professional Studies.

“Indiana Tech is pleased to partner with the Indiana State Police to benefit the men and women who work so hard to protect and serve our state,” said President Einolf. “Our degree offerings are well-suited to helping them advance in their careers, and to continue serving our state with the highest levels of professionalism, innovation and effectiveness. Everyone at our university looks forward to helping them pursue their educational goals and reach their greatest potential­.”

“What an exciting opportunity for the entire Indiana State Police family to start or advance their higher education desires in an affordable fashion with a quality institution,” said Indiana State Police superintendent Douglas G. Carter. “Words do not adequately express my appreciation to President Einolf and Indiana State Police Training Division commander Major Danny Price for crafting this educational opportunity, not only for all department members, but their spouses as well. It’s truly remarkable.”

Eligible participants will receive a scholarship to help make tuition even more affordable while pursuing their degree. In addition, current or retired troopers who wish to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice will receive credit for their academy training, making the path toward their degree shorter. Finally, textbook rental is included in the cost of tuition and books are shipped to students’ homes prior to the start of class.

Indiana Tech has been helping students achieve their educational goals for more than 85 years. Now, even more students are able to achieve through the flexibility and convenience provided by Indiana Tech’s College of Professional Studies. CPS courses are five and six weeks long and held once a week, online or in person at one of the university’s 18 regional campuses. This format helps busy working adults make quick progress and build momentum toward the completion of their degree.
