Why Marquette

To make one step forward for "Be The Difference" in my life, as well as my future students' ones, I decided to come to Marquette. I found out that trajectories of my research and teaching seem to have been on the Marquette's mission. That's why I feel Marquette is the best fit school for me to learn more about how I can not only advance knowledge and experience that help my students prepare for intellectual, artistic, professional and ethical leadership but also apply my research, teaching and service to make a contribution to the Marquette community and improve the lives of our neighbors.
