Plans to Re-Open in Fall 2020

Marquette University intends to resume campus operations this fall if governmental and medical authorities say it is safe to do so. The health and safety of the campus community remains a top priority. The COVID-19 Response Team has outlined a draft five-step recovery plan that will lead to a phased approach for reopening the Marquette University campus. 

The postponed graduation ceremony is scheduled to be held Sunday, August 30, pending local health and governmental approvals. 

51 Years -- Congratulations!

After 51 years at Marquette, Clinical Associate Professor Terry Tobin, MSN, MPH, has resigned her faculty position.  

Terry received her BSN and MSN from Marquette University and began teaching at Marquette in 1969. She taught Maternal Child Health, Women's Health, Health Assessment, Fundamentals of Nursing, Primary health Care and Internal Health. During that period she also partnered with various international organizations: Indonesia - University of Jakarta for WHO to establish a BSN program; health assessments in the Republic of Georgia; and observing USAID activities with Palestinians in Israel. She was very active on nursing committees at the University and Wisconsin state level, and implemented a 3-year federal grant to educate Perinatal Nurse Clinicians (the predecessor to nurse practitioners). 

Although she "retired" in 2005, she continued to teach Primary Health Care for Marquette nursing students until her resignation this summer. Please join us in wishing Terry well!
