Each U.S. university that enrolls F-1 students has Designated School Officials (or DSOs), who are responsible for updating the SEVIS system and advising students about the F-1 regulations. Within OIE, our advisers who are also DSOs, specialize in assisting students from specific geographic regions or with special tasks.

At Marquette University, the Advisers/DSOs include:

  • Michael Groen
    Assistant Director – michael.groen@marquette.edu (China, Middle East, South Korea)
  • Susan Whipple
    Assistant Director – susan.whipple@marquette.edu (Canada, Caribbean, Latin/Central/South America, Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, Eurasia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, Oceania)
