Fulbrights announced

Drs. Shed H. Akhter and Stephen Heinrich head abroad to do research in Barbados and France.

Field, court and classroom

Sit with me! The third-graders weren’t cheering for Shaquille O’Neal or Dwyane Wade; they were welcoming the Marquette student-athletes who came to help them master reading and mathematics. The athletes — from the volleyball, track, soccer, tennis and basketball teams — worked all year with 200 students at Lloyd Street Global Education School, a public elementary school near campus.
