Health Careers Opportunity Program

The Health Careers Opportunity Program at Marquette University is a federally funded program that provides opportunities for disadvantaged students who are interested in health professions. Our programs range from recruitment efforts at local middle schools to retention of students enrolled in professional programs at Marquette.

Summer Leadership Institute

The three-day Summer Leadership Institute is for high school students who wish to gain a better understanding of leadership within the various contexts of the college experience. Students will have the opportunity to reflect on their own leadership abilities and the role leaders play in groups. Students will also learn about what it means to act as a leader in service to others in the community. Finally, we will discuss how to convey leadership experiences in college applications. This program is designed for students who are the first in their family to go to college or who come from a multicultural background.

Urban Journalism Workshop

The Urban Journalism Workshop is an intense two-week program focusing on multimedia news gathering. Students use backpacks of digital equipment — iPods, digital cameras, camcorders, smart phones and MacBooks — to create an online publication.
