Spring 2024 Marquette Magazine, featuring refreshed design, now available 

The spring 2024 edition of Marquette Magazine was recently published and is now available online. Please contact Stacy Tuchel, executive assistant in the Office of University Relations, for print copies.

After six years with the same design, Marquette Magazine has a refreshed look and feel. Readers of the print edition will experience expanded storytelling, bolder photography, new layouts and fonts, and a cover design that displays “Marquette” front and center again, after it was previously split between front and back. It’s the result of a months-long process led by Thomas Pionek, assistant vice president of marketing, and a team including editor Stephen Filmanowicz and designer Julie Savasky of 508 Creative, with Rachel Gintner-Orlando, Jennifer Russell, Karen Parr, Sarah Koziol, Karen Samelson, Stacy Tuchel and Kasie Van Sistine. Chief Marketing and Communication Officer Lynn Griffith oversaw the project.

The latest edition also debuts “MU in Focus,” a eight-page section which highlights burgeoning examples of Marquette’s academic leadership and innovation. Stories from the magazine can additionally be read digitally on Marquette Today.
