"Even though we talk about specialization, why I think Marquette is such a significant institution not only locally but throughout the country is because we still focus on the strong liberal arts education no matter what major you have. A liberal arts education means that our students are going to learn to be problem solvers, critical thinkers, how to work in teams and how to communicate. With those skills, no matter what happens in the evolving landscape with technology, jobs and workforce, you are going to be able to add value to any organization. You are going to be able to learn and evolve. And you are also going to get the ethics and learn about doing things not because we can but because we should."

President, Marquette University
