Marian University opened as Marian College on September 8, 1936, with eight faculty and 17 full-time and 25 part-time students. The Congregation of Sisters of St. Agnes, founded as a teaching order by pioneer Father Caspar Rehrl, sponsored and staffed the fledgling institution. The Sisters previously had received their teacher education at either Marquette College (now University) or Oshkosh State Teachers College (now the University of Wisconsin–Oshkosh). When the state Department of Public Instruction barred the Sisters from student-teaching in public schools while wearing religious habits, Sisters Aloysia Leickem and Vera Naber petitioned the DPI to create their own college. Sister Aloysia became Marian’s first president, and Sister Vera was Marian’s first academic dean.
