Marquette University was founded in 1881 by members of the Society of Jesus, a Catholic religious order established in 1540 by St. Ignatius Loyola. The university is named after Father Jacques Marquette (1637-1675), a French, Jesuit missionary and explorer in North America.
Today Marquette University has a campus of approximately 90 acres and 60 buildings located in downtown Milwaukee. It consists of 12 colleges and schools: Arts and Sciences, Education, Law, Business Administration, Engineering, Management (Graduate), Communication, Graduate, Nursing, Dentistry, Health Sciences, and Professional Studies.
