SU Remembers Marilyn Seidel

Salisbury University and the Seidel School of Education and Professional Studies are honoring the memory of Marilyn Seidel, who passed away earlier this fall. Marilyn and her husband, Sam, for whom the School of Education and Professional Studies is named, presented the school with a $1 million endowment in 1997. This gift was the capstone of a campaign that raised $3 million for the school’s endowment. This philanthropy also made the Seidel School the first named, endowed school of education in Maryland and only the second in the United States. After her husband’s death in 2001, Marilyn remained closely involved with the school and served on the SU Foundation, Inc. board. The Seidel family, in addition to endowing the school, financed 14 scholarships throughout the region, seven being at SU. In Marilyn Seidel’s own words, her vision was “to make public education better by better educating teachers and enabling more to go into education.” University President Janet Dudley-Eshbach commented that the Seidel name is “synonymous with fairness, public service and advancement through education.”
