President’s Message

Dr. John P. Marsden is the tenth president of Midway University. He began his service on February 1, 2013.

Welcome to the website of Midway University! We have experienced significant transformations in the last few years by moving to university status to reflect expanding graduate programs and international partnerships, transitioning to full coeducation, and increasing the number of athletic teams. As a result, we recently welcomed a record number of undergraduate daytime and graduate students and are on a positive trajectory. To support our rapid growth, we plan to break ground on a new athletic field house and baseball stadium and are addressing critical housing needs on campus.

Despite these extraordinary changes, we remain committed to our mission to provide students with a career-focused education grounded in the liberal arts in a personalized learning environment. Our dedicated faculty and staff care about our students and their potential growth, dreams, and success. We offer a range of undergraduate majors and pre-professional preparation in-seat and online, internships, research with faculty, and study abroad opportunities as well as graduate programs in business, education, and nursing. We are also committed to providing you with an affordable option and offer generous financial aid to students.

As we continue to honor and celebrate our rich history from our beginning as the Kentucky Female Orphan School to today’s Midway University, we are always looking forward and addressing the rapidly changing landscape of higher education. How we can best serve our students remains at the heart of our discussions about the future. Please review our website and plan to visit in person to learn more about Midway University – a place that can make a difference in your life.

John P. Marsden, Ph.D.
President, Midway University
