Marian Alumni

Alumni Association

Inspired to serve, you know what it takes to earn a Marian University degree, as well as the impact you can make in the lives of future Marian University students through your time, talents, gifts, or sharing of your experience.

Marian’s Office of Alumni Relations provides alumni with opportunities to stay meaningfully involved and connected with your alma mater, it be through direct service, by providing career and internship opportunities, or just the chance to help our students network. We appreciate any time and help you’re able to provide. At Marian, we’re committed to a culture of innovation and improvement and you are an essential part of that.

Make A Donation

It doesn’t take a big donation to make a big difference in the lives of Marian University students. Think back to when you were in college – were you ever disappointed to receive some form of financial assistance?

Your donation to the Marian Fund, no matter the amount, directly gives our students access to learning opportunities they need to make a difference. 99% of our students receive financial aid, but we can only continue to give the quality, values-based education they need to engage our world through your support.

When you make a donation you are directly helping students:

  • Receive scholarships
  • Attend conferences
  • Obtain internships
  • Study abroad
  • Gaining sought-after professional qualifications

Your Marian experience was transformative. You can help students receive a similarly life-changing Marian University education–Donate Today!
