ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Dr. Arnold Mitchem, Grad '81, was the first director and helped found Marquette University's Educational Opportunity Program in 1969, which became a national model for the federally funded TRIO program. In 1986, he left Marquette to become the president of the Council for Opportunity in Education, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit that works in conjunction with colleges, universities and agencies that host federally funded TRIO programs. In 2008, Mitchem was elected to Marquette's Board of Trustees.

ABOUT THE TALK

Mitchem gave the keynote address at the 2009 DePaul University symposium "Balancing Market and Mission: Enrollment Management Strategies in Catholic Higher Education." The speech suggested opportunities for Catholic colleges and universities to emerge as leaders nationally on issues concerning student access and attainment.
