Marian hires new lead for expanding online curriculum
Marian University is making plans to expand online programs and has hired a veteran point person to oversee the effort. Lindsay Roberts has been hired as the first assistant vice president of online programs.
Roberts will be responsible for enhancing online programs and developing more educational options for traditional students.

Roberts most recently served at Purdue University Online. She also worked as director of the Center for the Advancement of Learning at the University of Evansville.
“I am eager to collaborate with the talented Marian faculty and staff to provide flexible educational pathways for students and grow the university’s online division by offering more high-quality, highly personalized, and in-demand professional, continuing and online programs to learners in Indiana and beyond,” said Roberts.
She begins March 1.
