A LETTER OF WELCOME FROM THE CHAIR OF THE PRESIDENTIAL SEARCH COMMITTEE
Welcome to the Presidential Search of Marian University:
Marian University is an uncommon place. Relatively young by academic standards, having been founded less than 80 years ago, the university has achieved impressive growth. Enrollment has grown from less than 350 in 1986 to well over 2,000 in the current academic year! Most importantly, Marian is strongly student-centered, evidenced by unusually high rankings as measured by both the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and the Student Satisfaction Inventory (SSI). Accredited to offer bachelors, masters, and doctoral programs, Marian is blazing a new trail as an emerging service-oriented, teaching-based university.
If you have come as a prospective candidate, we encourage you to view the search profile, noting the distinct opportunities represented by this presidency.
If you have come as a potential nominator of candidates, we ask you to consider persons in your acquaintance who would find this an exciting and rewarding leadership opportunity. You may feel free to forward their names to me at Marian@agbsearch.com and I will immediately make personal contact, encouraging their consideration of this presidency.
Thank you for your interest in Marian University. I look forward to hearing from you.
John M. Korb, Chair
Presidential Search Committee
