Give back

As alumni and friends of the Les Aspin Center for Government, you understand the uniqueness of our programs and the impact they have on our students.

During the past 30 years, the Les Aspin Center has transformed students into women and men dedicated to our political process and affecting change in our nation’s capitol, in their communities and around the world. The Les Aspin Center would not be what it is today without your help.

Together, we have been able to accomplish many things and transform many lives.

The extensive list of Les Aspin Center alumni working on Capitol Hill and in Washington, D.C., provides a vibrant network of professionals eager to help the next class of interns succeed. The center’s work in Africa has served Marquette students and young leaders from Liberia, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, Mali and Nigeria. The Kleczka Internship Program in Milwaukee has allowed students with demonstrated financial need to begin a career in government without having to travel to Washington, D.C.


The more than 2,500 Les Aspin Center for Government programs who have alumni — and the many more students to come — will be our eternal legacy for future generations.

Please make a gift to the Les Aspin Center today so we can continue our important work of transforming students’ lives and developing leaders for tomorrow.
