Congratulations to Manuela Salazar, Marian University's executive director of the Latino Leadership Initiative! Salazar was selected by the Indiana Latino Institute as one of five Latino Hoosiers to be recognized as an “Elevated Latinos under 40.” An external committee reviewed numerous nominations and evaluated candidates on education, roles and responsibilities, community engagement, and service to the Latino community with a successful track record.
Marian University President Daniel J. Elsener praised Salazar saying the Marian community is proud and honored to serve with her.
"It is terrifically encouraging to have a person of your talents and commitment leading Marian's Latino initiative, he said. "We are privileged to be your colleagues in this commitment to guiding young people on to the path towards a good life and unbounded success. Your leadership is making a dramatic difference in Marian’s unflagging commitment to the students you are attracting, the Latino community, and the common good."
