- Learn about Marquette’s Indigeneity Lab, which promotes Marquette’s Indigenous undergraduate students’ experiential learning through high-impact, faculty-mentored interdisciplinary research.
- Participate in Self-guided Indigenous Milwaukee Walk & Bike Tours, a collaboration between Historic Milwaukee, Inc. and Marquette University’s Indigeneity Lab, which explores the Indigenous roots of landmarks around the city.
- Read a reflection on our progress honoring Indigenous peoples and their native lands.
- Watch the Difference Maker video on Jacqueline Fontaine Schram, director of public affairs and special assistant for Native American affairs, to learn about her work connecting the university to its Indigenous roots and creating a nurturing environment for Indigenous members of the campus community.
