1. Newbridge property to be demolished; OIE relocating

Pre-demolition work of the Newbridge Apartments at the northeast corner of 12th and Wells streets is now underway. Protective fencing is in place in preparation for the demolition, which will start later this month and is expected to be completed by September. Grass will be planted on the site, since there are no specific plans for the property at this time.

Marquette carefully monitors property transactions in the campus area and, as properties within the campus master plan area become available, the university assesses their value and determines their importance to the campus environment. In June 2010 the university finalized the acquisition of the property, which is in a strategic location across the street from the Al McGuire Center.

Among the other campus construction projects underway this summer are improvements to student organization space in the lower level of Alumni Memorial Union, the relocation of the Office of International Education from AMU to Holthusen Hall later this month and the relocation of the Krueger Child Care Center to 500 N. 19th St. in August. Student Educational Services will expand from its current location on the third floor of AMU into space vacated by OIE. The forthcoming Gender Resource Center will also occupy a portion of the space vacated by OIE.

3. Supply chain management program ranked 14th in nation

The undergraduate supply chain management program in the College of Business Administration has been named among the best in the country by Gartner Inc., the nation’s top supply chain industry organization. Marquette’s program was ranked 14th.
Gartner released the 2011 list at its annual June conference in Scottsdale, Ariz. This is the first year Marquette has made the yearly top 25 list.
“Rankings are just one factor we look at in evaluating quality, but to be listed among the nation’s best by a supply chain organization of Gartner’s caliber is a testament to the strength and momentum of our program,” said Doug Fisher, director of the Center for Supply Chain Management.

Gartner surveyed more than 400 practitioners and academics to rate collegiate supply chain programs based on industry value (40 percent), program size (20 percent) and program scope (40 percent). Respondents were asked to assess how well these programs meet the changing needs of supply chain professionals and how efficiently research and innovation reach the student population. Gartner also factored in information provided by the schools regarding enrollment numbers, programs and faculty size.
