Dear Marquette faculty, staff and students,

I want to alert you to two items of significance at Marquette University this week: the provost candidate feedback deadline on Jan. 28 and my presidential address on Jan. 29.

Our university is at the final, crucial stage of its search for a new provost. I thank everyone who participated in the campus visits of our four finalists and now ask you to please help the search committee and me in our final deliberations by offering your valuable feedback. Separate forms are available online for each candidate:

Feedback form for Dr. John Frendreis

Feedback form for Dr. Paul Ludden

Feedback form for Dr. Daniel Myers

Feedback form for Dr. Rowena Pecchenino

If you were not able to attend the public sessions for all candidates, or if you would like to review sessions you did attend, all videos have been posted online:

The deadline to submit your comments is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28.

Please know that the search committee and I have not decided which candidate to select. Your feedback will help guide us to the best decision. I will be meeting with the search committee to hear its evaluation soon. We hope to be able to announce our new provost before the end of February.

I am extremely appreciative for all the work done by the search committee and its chair, Dr. John Su, and thank everyone in advance for their participation in this extremely important final portion of the search process.

The other significant item this week is at 3 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 29. I'll be delivering my first State of the University address in the Monaghan Ballroom of the Alumni Memorial Union. In addition to updates on key strategic initiatives, I plan to make several major announcements about our university. Please join me Thursday.


Dr. Michael R. Lovell
