Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

President Lovell and his leadership team are transforming the student experience by implementing Marquette’s strategic plan, Beyond Boundaries. A novel Marquette Core Curriculum — at the center of every undergraduate’s educational experience and rooted in Jesuit perspective and values — was implemented in fall 2018. The Campus Master Plan Initiative will integrate academic, physical and financial priorities over the next decade. Projects include The Commons — Marquette’s first newly constructed residence hall in more than 50 years — and the Athletic and Human Performance Research Center, and Physician Assistant Studies Building, both under construction.

The university is transforming the Strategic Innovation Fund, unveiled by President Lovell in 2014, into The Marquette Impact Challenge. It cultivates and funds innovative ideas from students, faculty, and staff, and is partially funded through the Johnson Controls Foundation.

President Lovell, his wife Amy and the university launched a citywide initiative called Scaling Wellness in Milwaukee to help heal trauma in the community. President Lovell explains why they launched the movement in an extensive interview with Crux, the most-read online, Catholic news outlet in the English language.
