Graduate & Professional Studies

100 Years of the Graduate School kickoff event, Oct. 25

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the formation of the Graduate School at Marquette. Among one of the first Graduate Schools established at a Jesuit university, Marquette’s Grad School opened its doors in the fall of 1922.

To commemorate this historic moment, the Graduate School will host a series of events throughout the academic year honoring the accomplishments of graduate student alumni, deepening the understanding of graduate education’s mission and purpose in the 21st century, and celebrating the contributions provided by faculty, students and staff on behalf of the Graduate School. 

The Graduate School will kick off the yearlong series of programming with a keynote address on Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 3 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Beaumier Suites.

The address will be led by Leonard Cassuto and Robert Weisbuch, national experts in graduate education reform movements and authors of “The New PhD: How to Build a Better Graduate Education.”  

Registration is required as space is limited. Please RSVP to attend this event online.
