Higher education faces increasingly strong headwinds, threatening to bring educational progress to a halt unless innovative responses to 21st century challenges are quickly developed and implemented. Marquette University President Michael R. Lovell will discuss how Wisconsin’s largest private university is creating innovative responses to those headwinds with a new focus on academics and research, the student experience, and community building. These approaches involve Marquette creating new academic programs that match the needs of Southeastern Wisconsin organizations, devoting renewed attention on students’ health and well-being, and working with community partners to create a stronger, more vibrant Near West Side.
Rotary meetings are open to members, invited guests and media.
