The College of Education achieved record participation in the sixth annual Marquette Community Campaign with over 90% of full-time faculty, professional administrators and staff contributing toward student scholarships and vital community organizations.
The campaign represents an opportunity for Marquette employees to donate to the university’s Annual Fund — especially for scholarship aid; the United Performing Arts Fund, which assists performing arts organizations in southeastern Wisconsin; and United Way, which supports local health and human service programs. In addition to scholarship aid, employees can also contribute to other Marquette initiatives such as building projects, as part of the university's Annual Fund.
"This level of participation among our faculty and staff speaks to honoring our social justice mission as a university and academic unit, and it makes me proud to be dean," commented Dr. Bill Henk. "Simply put, we are called in the Ignatian spirit of Magis to do more – to sacrifice and stretch, and this show of caring by members of our academic community demonstrates our willingness to do so on behalf of others.”
