Community around Campus


As the university’s advocate, the Office of Public Affairs supports the institution by working with elected representatives of government at all levels, appointed officials, and other community leaders. In addition to public efforts such as testimony at public hearings and one-on-one meetings with friends of Marquette, we also are counselors in helping the university to collaborate across all its governmental and community activities.
How can Public Affairs assist you both on campus and in our neighborhood? We look forward to working with you and welcome your thoughts using the contacts below.
