Archbishop Listecki Congratulates New Marquette University President

Early today, Dr. Michael R. Lovell was elected the 24th president of Marquette University by the Marquette Board of Trustees at a special Board meeting. As the university’s first lay president, he will succeed Interim President Robert A. Wild, S.J. Lovell will take office on Aug. 1, 2014.

“It was the dream of Milwaukee’s first Archbishop, John Martin Henni, to establish a Catholic, Jesuit College in Milwaukee. Now, as the 1st lay leader of Marquette University since its founding in 1881, Dr. Michael Lovell will lead Marquette University into a new era of Catholic higher education in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee," explained Archbishop Jerome E. Listecki. "I look forward to working with Dr. Lovell to ensure the Catholic values and identity of Marquette University remain strong under his leadership, as Marquette continues to invite students to grow in mind, heart and spirit, and to be men and women for others." 

"Through the intercession of St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, I ask God’s blessing upon Dr. Lovell and the entire Marquette community during this exciting time of transition. Ad majorem Dei gloriam!”
