About the Inauguration

Inauguration events for Dr. Michael R. Lovell will offer the Marquette community a full range of opportunities to warmly welcome our 24th president to campus through worship, reflection and celebration.

The Inauguration will celebrate Marquette's Catholic, Jesuit faith tradition and 133-year history of academic excellence in service to others while showcasing the innovative spirit of discovery and exploration that will lift Marquette to ever greater heights. The theme of the Inauguration — Ignited in faith. Alive in inquiry. Forward in service. — is inspired by the university's rich tradition of excellence, faith, leadership and service, as well as its commitment to extending knowledge beyond existing boundaries in pursuit of solutions for pressing problems and answers to life's deepest questions.
