The Office of Community Engagement is excited to announce that it will sponsor half of the cost for up to four faculty members to attend and present at the Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities Conference, from Sunday, October 8 to Wednesday, October 11, in Denver, Colorado.
The conference titled, “The Urban Advantage,” will consider the important role that cities serve in students’ academic and personal growth. Given the health focus of the 2017-18 Marquette Forum, preference will be offered to those faculty members presenting on engagement in research related to health topics.
Interested faculty members should contact Dan Bergen, executive director for the Office of Community Engagement, by Friday, April 7. Final proposals for the conference are due by Friday, April 21.
