Dear Students,

I want to take this opportunity to welcome new students to campus and welcome back those who are returning. As we begin a new year and semester at Marquette, I’d like to echo what Provost Myers addressed in Tuesday’s letter.  I am inspired by the steps we’ve taken to be a more inclusive campus, but there is certainly more work to be done.

Speaking of work, Marquette’s Master Planning process is in full swing. Students will continue to be a critical part of this process. Your feedback is instrumental in shaping the future of our university.

Looking forward to this semester, I’d like to highlight some opportunities you can take advantage of and be involved in:

Marquette offers many other opportunities and resources for students, including recreational opportunities offered by the Department of Recreational Sports, academic support programs through Student Educational Services, internship and job search support from the Career Services Center.

The Marquette community, including the staff in the Division of Student Affairs, is here to support you and help make the most of your college experience. If you have any questions about the resources or programs available, visit the Division of Student Affairs website or call our central office at (414) 288-7206 for assistance.
I wish you all my best for what promises to be a great semester ahead.

Jim McMahon, Ph.D.
Interim Vice President for Student Affairs
