Biography

Loren Marks joined the School of Family Life in 2015, after 13 years at LSU. Marks received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from BYU, and his Ph.D. from the University of Delaware. He has centered his research efforts on religion and families, and has published several related articles or chapters, as well as the book Sacred Matters (with Wes Burr and Randy Day). His research on families has received national media attention from outlets including The New York Times, The Washington Times, The Boston Globe, and The Wall Street Journal. He has twice been nominated for the national Carnegie (CASE) Professor of the Year Award—in 2011 and 2014. He is Co-Director (with Dr. David Dollahite) of the American Families of Faith Project that includes 200 Christian, Jewish, and Muslim families from all eight regions of the United States. Loren served a two-year LDS mission in Wisconsin (1991-1993). His LDS Church service over the past twenty years has been primarily with the youth. Loren and his wife, Sandra Martindale Marks, married in 1995 and are the parents of five dynamic children—Mishonne, Logan, Haley Renee, Denton, and Aliyah.
