Marian University was invited to participate in the Center for the Study of Institutions and Innovation (CSII) and did receive funding for the 2017-18 academic year.
CSII’s mission is to provide leadership in Wisconsin, the region, and beyond on issues pertaining to civil liberty and related institutions (governmental, civic, business, social, scientific, religious, etc.) and innovations through scholarly inquiry, educational activities, and community outreach. To support this mission, CSII developed partnerships with Wisconsin campuses committed to the same goals. All thirteen UW-System campuses were eligible to join the network, as well as up to twelve private universities or colleges located in Wisconsin.
“Marian University is excited to be part of this opportunity,” said Dr. Russel Mayer, vice president for academic affairs. “Inclusion in this project will allow Marian University to inform and educate faculty, staff, students, and the greater Fond du Lac community on issues surrounding our civil liberties. Without this funding, we would not have been able to accomplish this.”
Information regarding upcoming events will be shared on Marian’s website, as well as social media platforms.
