Biography

Marion holds an undergraduate degree in history from Smith College, M.A. degrees in education from Boston University and economics from Drexel University, and an M.B.A from the University of Delaware.  She coordinates the Stock Market Game, a national program offered by the Center for Delaware students in grades 4-12.  Marion also teaches Civics and Economics for the Elementary Teacher, an undergraduate course jointly sponsored by the Center and the School of Public Policy and Administration.  Before joining the Center in 2005, Marion taught economics and history in the Brandywine School District.  She then worked at the MBNA Foundation for eight years as a grants administrator recommending funding levels to support classroom projects in Delaware.   

The Lerner College is home to a state-of-the-art financial trading facility, the $1.5 million student-led Blue Hen Investment Club, a student-managed restaurant and hotel, a high-technology development center of a global bank and a start-up experience for students with new business ideas.

Lerner College faculty - like Meryl Gardner, whose research on foods and moods was recently published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology - are thought leaders who command attention from influential business audiences, economists and policy makers.

All Lerner College departments offer discovery learning experiences and emphasize data-based analytics to enrich the student experience. Here, students at Vita Nova, our award-winning restaurant run through HRIM, joined professional chefs and winemakers in hosting a 2014 Mid-Atlantic Wine and Food Festival event.

The Institute for Financial Services Analytics is a collaboration between the Lerner College, UD's College of Engineering and JPMorgan Chase, and hosts events for academics and the business community designed to address consumer analytics and industry applications.

Undergraduate scholarships, made possible through the generosity of alumni and friends, enable us to support promising scholars. Here, Delaware Gov. Jack Markell and his mother, Leni Markell, join recipients of the William Markell Scholarship (center), which benefits students in Accounting and MIS.
