The Importance of Faith
Marian University's identity as a Catholic Franciscan institution is grounded in Jesus Christ. Our faith is ever present and visible in the fabric of the educational philosophy and operation of the university. It guides the way faculty, administration, staff, and students relate to one another and how visitors are welcomed to campus.
Our Catholic Franciscan identity guides what courses are offered, and the mode and purpose of the teaching and learning that occurs in the classroom.
It guides the activities and tone of campus life, and most importantly, guides the university's journey into a remarkable future.
Marian University is a special place. As a student, it is a place to learn about who you really are and become the person you've always wanted to be. As a teacher, you participate in an excellent academic environment where teaching and learning excellence merges with deeper values to create a challenging process of intellectual, spiritual, moral, and social development.
