Marilyn Roach

Marilyn Roach

Vice Chair

Marilyn Roach has worked in communications, from television reporting to politics to marketing, and is now retired. Her volunteer efforts are centered on education.


Marilyn’s interest in the University of Idaho came from her family, including her parents, Jim and Louise McClure. She believes in public policy developing pragmatically based on factual evidence, created by people who hold a variety of views, as public policy decisions affect us all. She also believes that the McClure Center should be a resource for factual evidence for students, the public and policy makers, and a catalyst for discussions statewide and beyond.


She has a B.A. in Government from the College of William and Mary.
