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 — the Athletic and Human Performance Research Center, the Physician Assistant Studies Building and the College of Business Administration building, which is currently under construction.

President Lovell unveiled The Marquette Impact Challenge (formerly the Strategic Innovation Fund) in 2014. The challenge 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.
