About the Campaign
Marian University is poised to take the next step toward embarking on its first capital campaign in over 15 years, entitled The Marian Campaign – Inspired Students. Stronger Community. The time is now for our University to offer innovative, effective programs that will provide a unique advantage over other competitors. With our diverse student body, talented faculty and forward-thinking administrators, the key components are in place for us to reach the highest level of success.
To achieve our aggressive goals of increased student enrollment, new faculty recruitment, and new program development, Marian University must begin to modernize our facilities into state-of-the art learning and discovery spaces that foster student development for the 21st century. Marian University will continue to fulfill its mission through its $13 million campaign, which includes $1 million dedicated to growing the Endowment fund and $12 million committed to renovating and expanding the existing science center. The science center will feature new laboratory spaces for instruction and research, as well as be renamed the Dr. Richard and Leslie Ridenour Science Center, in honor of Marian’s 11th president.
