Marian University Announces $13 Million Comprehensive Campaign


Marian University announced today it has embarked on the public phase of its $13 million comprehensive campaign, "The Marian Campaign: Inspired Students, Stronger Community." 

"We are proud to be continuing the pioneering spirit of the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes with this ambitious fundraising campaign," said Andrew P. Manion, Ph.D., president of Marian University. "The lion's share of the funds raised during the Marian Campaign will be dedicated to the renovation and significant expansion of the science center." 

The renovated science center will greatly expand teaching and research capabilities to better prepare students for post-graduate employment, graduate or professional schools, and internships. The science center will feature state-of-the-art laboratory and classroom space, as well as ample student study spaces. 

"The science center will also be rededicated in honor of Dr. Richard and Leslie Ridenour," added Manion. "The Ridenours served extraordinarily as president and first lady of Marian from 1997 to 2006, and the naming of the science center is Marian's way of honoring their work and continuing their success." 

So far, the Marian Campaign has raised more than $10 million since the silent phase began in September 2015. The Marian Campaign aims to raise the total $13 million goal by the end of June 2018.  

"A comprehensive campaign strengthens universities," said Tracy Milkowski, vice president for Advancement. "The Marian Campaign provides momentum, moving Marian University forward and allowing both the institution and our students to achieve success."

Marian University was founded in 1936 by the Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes in Fond du Lac, Wis. The institution has one of the lowest student-faculty ratios in the state, and strives to live its core values as a community committed to learning, dedicated to service and social justice and joined together by spiritual traditions. Marian offers undergraduate, adult, master’s and doctoral degree programs at its main campus and in facilities throughout Wisconsin.
