Marquette named among "Best Places to Work" by Milwaukee Business Journal

Best Places to Work logoMembers of the University Staff Senate​ are proud to represent and serve the dedicated staff whose contributions helped to make Marquette University a winner of the Milwaukee Business Journal, "2016 Best Places to Work​" in the category for organizations exceeding 250 employees. The final rankings were published in the October 21 print issue.

The University Staff Senate worked with KEI, the university’s landscaping partner, to have a tree planted on behalf of all Marquette employees to commemorate the award. The tree is a Chinquapin Oak, a native tree not previously represented on campus.

To celebrate the designation, University Staff Senate invites the campus community to a dedication ceremony. The brief program will include remarks from Dr. Lovell and a blessing of the tree. Refreshments will be served. Please plan on attending this special gathering.

Date: Wednesday, May 3, 2017
Time: 1:30 p.m.
Location: At the site of the Chinquapin Oak, just south of the Haggerty Art Museum entrance
Note: In the event of rain, we will gather in the Helfaer Theatre lobby.
