Contacts for Supporting Student Success

Many times, parents, family members, and guardians of Marian University students are the first people our students approach for guidance, support, and help.

The links on this page will provide you with more information about campus resources, and the person to contact, to ensure your student gets answers and assistance when needed.

We look forward to serving you!
