We are excited to announce the search for the Senior Development Officer in the Office of Institutional Advancement and Development for Marian University. Founded in 1937, Marian University is one to the nation’s preeminent Catholic institutions of higher learning and ranks as one of US News & World Report’s top universities in the Midwest Region. The University has experienced tremendous growth in the past 15 years under the leadership of President Daniel J. Elsener, including the opening of the Marian University College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2013- Indiana’s first new medical school in 110 years. With over 40 majors in biology to business, education to engineering, and math to medicine, the University currently has a student body of over 3600 students in undergraduate and graduate degree programs and in 2019 965 students were graduated.
To achieve its vision of the future, University leadership recognizes the need to strengthen its Office of Institutional Advancement/Development. With sound leadership in place, there is an identified need to recruit a Senior Development Officer who is motivated, thoughtful, detail-oriented, and has the personal skills to engage donors and friends of the University. The successful candidate will report to the Executive Director of Development and play a key role in building relationships with donors, alumni, and other constituents while securing investments from their assigned portfolios.
In short, this is an exciting opportunity for an individual who is a successful fundraising professional and has the desire to assist Marian University’s leadership in addressing and achieving their bold, inspirational goals for the future. The new Senior Development Officer will possess the skills, knowledge and know-how to help Marian reach its goals through a well-designed and executed development strategy.
