1. Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology changing its name

The Department of Counseling and Educational Psychology, College of Education, will change its name to The Department of Counselor Education and Counseling Psychology effective July 1.

According to Dr. Bill Henk, dean, the name change is intended to be more reflective of the foci of the department and the programs offered within the department. “The school counseling and community counseling programs remain as mainstays in the department,” said Dr. Todd Campbell, department chair and associate professor. “Our APA-accredited doctoral program in counseling psychology is the other mainstay and this program continues to grow and enhance its reputation. The educational psychology programs are no longer being offered.”

2. Marquette named a “Best Buy School” by Fiske

Marquette University is one of 44 schools selected to be in the 2010 edition of the Fiske Guide to Colleges as a “Best Buy School.” According to the Fiske guide, these institutions are based on the quality of academic offerings in relation to the cost of attendance. “Fiske researchers combined the cost data with academic and other lifestyle information about each college and university to determine what institutions offer really remarkable educational opportunities at a relatively modest cost,” a company statement said.

3. Employees contribute to financial aid initiative

Faculty and staff have donated more than $55,000 to the Bridge to the Future fund, established this spring to provide financial aid assistance for students whose changing economic circumstances threaten their ability to continue their Marquette education.

"The response of our colleagues shows how strongly we, as a university community, believe in the value of the Marquette experience," said Julie Tolan, vice president for university advancement. "With an average gift of $220, our faculty and staff continue to show support for our students, not only in their day-to-day activities but also through their fiscal generosity."

Contributions to Bridge to the Future are still being accepted, either by check, payroll deduction or online. Every gift, no matter what size, makes a difference.

4. Tomorrow is deadline to submit scholarly accomplishments

Faculty and staff with 2009 professional accomplishments, such as publications, presentations and awards, should make sure they’re documented on the university’s News From You online resource by tomorrow, June 30. Accomplishments that have occurred since November 2008 will be used to compile the next issue of Compendium, which will be distributed at the beginning of the 2009-10 academic year. Those accomplishments are also posted on Marquette’s research Web page.

Compiling these faculty accomplishments is an excellent way to let the campus community know about the great research taking place at Marquette and to allow fellow faculty to see opportunities for cross-disciplinary collaboration. The online listing also allows external Web search access to faculty accomplishments.
