to graduate students who have demonstrated a commitment to promoting
diversity on campus and in the community. Scholarship applicants
submit essays about the efforts to celebrate diversity, barriers
to diversity and strategies to address those barriers. According
to Dr. Todd Campbell, assistant professor in the School of Education
, this scholarship shows that the university's “commitment to
diversity is translated into deeds.”

event will include a silent auction, performances by Marquette
University 's Gospel Choir and Three Da Hard Way , a
local Milwaukee singing group. Hors d'oeuvres will be served.
