MILWAUKEE — Dr. Heidi Bostic, dean of the Klinger College of Arts and Sciences and College of Education, is piloting a Faculty in Residence program at Marquette University for the 2022-23 academic year. Bostic and her husband, Dr. Stephen Pluháček, affiliated faculty member in the Department of Theology, moved into an on-campus university-owned apartment in August.
The vision for the Faculty in Residence program is for faculty participants to serve as a clear and visible presence to help deepen integration and a more holistic student experience at Marquette. Faculty in Residence program participants will serve as campus community leaders and foster intellectual and academic life beyond the classroom, as well as promote and pursue Marquette’s strategic priorities within the context of Marquette’s guiding values and Catholic, Jesuit mission.
Beyond faculty merely living in campus residence halls and apartment buildings, the program will explore the possibility of faculty partners who will work closely with students who live on campus, particularly first- and second-year students. In addition—and in collaboration with the Near West Side Partners and others—the program will seek to develop and highlight opportunities for Marquette faculty and staff to live near campus.
The Faculty in Residence program has four main goals:
Inaugural Faculty in Residence participants
As the first Faculty in Residence participants, Bostic and Pluháček will work toward achieving the program’s goals and help to establish the infrastructure to expand the program at Marquette. They will support the academic mission and learning that occurs within the Office of Residence Life residential curriculum, collaborate with Marquette’s Living Learning Communities, work to create a more robust ecosystem that includes hall ministers and Jesuits in residence, host small-group gatherings of students and encourage faculty participation in residence hall events.
