Marquette faculty and staff are invited to a Beyond Boundaries town hall event on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 3 p.m. in the Weasler Auditorium. The event, hosted by President Michael R. Lovell, Provost Daniel Myers and Executive Vice President Dave Lawlor, is an opportunity to learn about a host of exciting new ways the university will advance the strategic and campus master plans.
“Our plans are ambitious — and they ought to be,” President Lovell says. “Marquette must not only keep pace with the changing landscape of higher education and the greater marketplace, we need to outpace it. To do so, we must be adequately resourced — that’s why university leaders have identified a dozen strategic initiatives that will position Marquette with the resources necessary to successfully execute our strategic and campus master plans.”
Dubbed the M12, the 12 initiatives are focused on undergraduate and graduate enrollment, first-year recruitment, a tuition discount plan, transfer students, international students, research, asset monetization, fundraising growth, residential optimization, online education, graduate education, and operational efficiencies.
At the town hall event, the president, provost and executive vice president will outline the initiatives’ strategic importance; a special presentation will take a deeper look at the enrollment and graduate education initiatives. Attendees will also have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about how they can help the university go Beyond Boundaries. A brief reception will follow.
Registration for the event is required and available online.
