Our students attach high value to our small class sizes, having faculty members actively instructing in the classroom, the availability of intensive advising, exceptional student success resources, modern facilities, a growing global community and robust extracurricular programming. Our faculty members are leaders, mentors and cultivators of talent. They are making a real difference in the lives of our students, many of whom arrive here with enormous potential but lack a reliable roadmap for academic accomplishment. Our alumni are the heart and soul of the Marshall family. They have gone on to lead Fortune 500 companies, win Pulitzer Prizes and become captains of industry, science, education and the arts. Here are some Quick Facts about MU.

Marshall University uses educational equivalencies in determining if a potential applicant meets the minimum education requirements as defined in the position description and job posting. For example, if a candidate doesn’t have the required Bachelor’s or Master’s degree listed in the job posting/description, he/she may still be considered for the job pending that they have previous work experience. “Significant position related experience” may count towards educational requirements. For the purpose of awarding educational equivalency, “significant position related experience” is defined as working in a role where the essential job functions are primarily the same as the job in which you are applying.
