Heard at Inauguration

“This campus and its students bring such a vibrant energy to our city and we are all proud to have such a world-class institution in the heart of the city of Scranton. The University is a true exemplar of the best of Jesuit education.”
U.S. Rep. Matt Cartwright

“The city would not be what it is today without The University of Scranton. The University is a foundational institution in the community and as we do go forward it is paramount that we continue to build together.”
Paige Cognetti, mayor of Scranton

“In Father Marina, the board found a skilled academic leader and proven teacher who is also the ideal champion for mission and for community in all its richness.”
James Slattery ’86, chair of The University of Scranton Board of Trustees

“Speaking for all Jesuits, you have our great affection, our prayers and every confidence that you will be a wonderful leader of this amazing place.”
Rev. Joseph M. O’Keefe, S.J., provincial of the USA East Province of the Society of Jesus

“We are absolutely privileged to have such a kind and thoughtful person leading The University of Scranton community as our new president. We have already noticed Father Marina’s genuine commitment to students and remain excited about the legacy he will leave on this University long after many of us have graduated. … While I’m sure his culinary skills are on point, it’s comforting to know that students aren’t the only ones who set off the fire alarm in Pilarz Hall.”
