Research & Scholarship Administration

Our Vision

By 2030, Marian University will be known as a national leader for coupling innovative education practices with real-world, advanced research – all while upholding the Marian Promise of support and intentional mentorship for students.

Student-Driven and Faculty-Led

Those ideals form the foundation of research and scholarly activity at Marian University. 

Across academic disciplines, involvement in cutting-edge research correlates with greater depth of learning and a better understanding of how coursework applies to everyday life. Student participation in mentored research also leads to stronger connections with teammates, faculty members, and their professional fields at-large. These benefits enhance student retention and satisfaction with and commitment to a chosen career. Additionally, demonstrated success as a scholar can influence desired placement of students in their next stage of learning – whether that is graduate or professional school, residency or a first job.

Marian University faculty, staff and students are active as scholars by publishing and presenting their work to myriad audiences. And, our scholarly environment is strengthened by external funding from prestigious agencies such as the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation, American Osteopathic Association, and the Arthritis Foundation and industry partners such as Abbvie.

It’s an exciting time to be a scholar at Marian University. And we’re just getting started.
