Strategic Alignment for Marian University Creates Additional Changes

May 31, 2019

Marian University continues to align its strategic priorities with a top-quality student experience. In order to position the university for future growth, Marian is following its offering of a Voluntary Separation Incentive Program to retirement-eligible faculty and staff with a reduction in workforce, involving nine administrative (non-faculty) employees.

“It is painful to say goodbye to dedicated employees. This decision was difficult. The reduction of these non-faculty positions is part of an important strategic effort to focus our resources on direct service to our students,” stated Dr. Andrew Manion, president of Marian University.

By aligning strategic priorities to budget, Marian is positioning itself for future growth, including investing in programs, delivery methods, and research that will set it apart from other universities. The clarification of responsibilities, processes, and improvements at Marian will positively and directly influence the student experience, whether face-to-face or online.
