Sustainability dashboards

Associated with this theme are several key metrics, which help us assess our progress toward the achievement of the goal. For each metric, Marquette’s current value is shown in comparison to the previous value, along with an indicator of the direction of the change. More detailed data are accessible for each metric, including a trend over time and, if available, a comparison to a group of 22 referent universities comprising both peer and aspirational schools. Often, the availability of comparison data lags by a year or more. For some metrics, comparison data cannot be disaggregated by school; thus, only group comparison statistics are shown. For internally tracked metrics, although comparative data are not available, the data will be tracked over time.
