Michelle Wendt"Marquette University offers more than an excellent education, it prepares students to become effective leaders and mindful world citizens. The College of Professional Studies offers a truly unique program for non-traditional adult learners who will make a difference, both personally and professionally. I am proud to be a part of this diverse CPS family and cherish the life-long connections I have made throughout my own educational and teaching experiences at MU."
