DB&A Executive Search & Recruitment is 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 of 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.

The individual who assumes these responsibilities will have an opportunity to leave his/her mark and play a significant role in building Marian University's legacy far into the future.  Marian University launched Forging Leaders 2025 in 2017 to raise $250 million by 2025.  This bold vision has resulted in more than $115 million raised of the interim $150 million goal for 2021.  This initiative will provide support for student scholarships, facilities, and other innovative efforts to include the Klipsch Educators College, the Latin@Initiative, the Sisters' Legacy Fund, St. Joseph's Two-Year College at Marian University, and the Walker Center for Applied Ethics. 

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.

More specifically, the successful candidate will be a passionate and outgoing fundraising professional with previous portfolio experience, a demonstrated history of successfully developing and soliciting major donors ($25,000 and above), and a deep appreciation and affinity to the vision and work of Marian University.  He/She will take leadership of a portfolio of existing major donors as well as plug into a multi-tiered development program that deploys resources at every level of the giving pyramid and donor pipeline.  While this is not a lone-wolf scenario, in that teamwork and departmental leadership are expected of the new Senior Development Officer, he/she will be entrepreneurial, self-motivated and goals oriented to proactively grow his/her portfolio by assessing and leveraging Marian's data base and resources as well as by working on elevation strategies with Marian's various acquisition channels and donor segments.  Current leadership experience and/or leadership potential will be viewed positively.

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 goal through a well-designed and executed development strategy.
