Why Marquette

Marquette’s focus on moral responsibility and social justice speaks to my own education and ethics as a graduate of a Jesuit school and a critical media scholar. I want to help my students produce journalism that matters, the type of journalism that empowers communities and democracies. I have found that Marquette University possesses the resources and values to provide that kind of education.
