July 28 Parents COVID-19 Town Hall video now available

On Tuesday evening, about 1,100 Marquette parents and guardians gathered virtually for a COVID-19 Town Hall. The event focused on the recovery planning process, specifically health and safety procedures, academic planning and residence hall logistics.

Dr. Xavier Cole, vice president for student affairs, moderated the event. Rev. Jim Voiss, S.J., vice president for mission and ministry, offered an invocation.

President Michael R. Lovell shared opening remarks in which he commented on the university’s plans for fall 2020 to reopen in a hybrid format, part online and part in-person. President Lovell shared that the university continues to work closely with the Milwaukee Health Department and is current awaiting a response from them regarding our reopening plan. The university plans to share its definitive plans for the fall semester next week.

Various members of the Response Team then offered updates on Marquette’s recovery planning process and responded to questions. The event was recorded and is available via YouTube.
