In January, the Alumni Association office welcomed Cindy Marino into a newly created role as associate vice president for alumni and community relations. The new role oversees alumni relations, community relations, and communications.

“I am thrilled to have an opportunity to work with our alumni in my new position,” said Marino.  “As a former student and employee, I am proud to represent Cardinal Stritch University.” 


In this role, Marino will work closely with Joel Cencius, ’06, director of alumni relations and annual giving and the Alumni Board of Directors in building a successful alumni program for the university. The new role will also be vital in helping to revitalize a parent program for the association.

Since assuming the position, Marino has already had the opportunity to attend events and meet with many alumni. 

“If the wonderful basketball alumni reunion was an indication of what is ahead, I am looking forward to many exciting occasions for us to celebrate our connection with fellow Stritch graduates,” said Marino.

Marino has been an educator, serving in Milwaukee for close to 20 years. She went on to spend eight years at Stritch as the executive director of Outreach, leaving in 2003 to become the first lay president of Sr. Joan Antida High School in Milwaukee.

“I am thrilled to be back at Stritch. It really feels like ‘coming home’ in so many ways,” said Marino.
