Campus resources and support are available as the Marquette family grieves

As we continue to mourn the loss of Dr. Joe Daniels, Keyes Dean of Business Administration, the university is providing additional pastoral support and counseling resources.

For students: Campus Ministers are available all day in Campus Ministry, located on the second floor of the Alumni Memorial Union, and counselors are available at the Counseling Center, located on the second floor of Holthusen Hall.

For faculty and staff: Representatives from the Faber Center will be in Campus Ministry on the second floor of the AMU during the day today. The Employee Assistance Program will be available in the AMU 228 from 11 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. today. All faculty and staff and anyone in their households may reach the Employee Assistance Program 24 hours per day, seven days a week, by calling 800-236-3231.

Last night, Villanova University held a moment of silence for Joe before the Marquette men’s basketball matchup. Marquette athletics will hold a moment of silence in Joe’s honor at the following athletic events over the next week:

  • Friday, Feb. 14 – Marquette Women’s Lacrosse vs. Cincinnati, 1 p.m. at Valley Dome
  • Friday, Feb. 14 – Marquette Women’s Basketball vs. Xavier, 7 p.m. at the Al McGuire Center
  • Saturday, Feb. 15 – Marquette Men’s Lacrosse vs. Jacksonville, noon at Valley Dome
  • Tuesday, Feb. 18 – Marquette Men’s Basketball vs. Creighton, 7:30 p.m. at Fiserv Forum

The Marquette community is grateful for the outpouring of support from those in Milwaukee and our Marquette family across the country who continue to express their love and prayers for Joe’s family, friends and colleagues.

Funeral arrangements will be shared when that information is available.

Attributed as the Quaker Prayer

We give them back to you, dear Lord,
Who gave them to us.
Yet as you did not lose them in giving,
so we have not lost them by their return.
For what is yours is ours always, if we are yours.
And life is eternal and love is immortal
And death is only a horizon.
And a horizon is nothing more
than a limit to our sight.
