VanDerhoef and I did after May Commencement. With Rev. John Thiede, S.J., as our guide, we trekked to Santiago, Chile, and stayed for a week in the Jesuit community adjacent to Alberto Hurtado University — Chile’s only Jesuit university.

During our stay, we joined the Chilean Jesuits serving

others through diverse activities. Unlike in the United States, where Jesuits traditionally work to support academic institu-

impact on me.

At Techo para Chile (Roof for Chile), a nonprofit, we learned how the Jesuits created an organization to provide basic housing for refugees and the poorest citizens in Latin America. Their sophisticated housing database and social inclusion and microfinance programs are transforming poor communities. When visiting Infocap, we learned how the Society of Jesus has created an infrastructure for upward job mobility by training workers with minimal skills to become certified in trades, including carpentry, IT, electricity and welding. At Servicio Jesuita a Migrantes, Jesuits help find the resources for thousands of immigrants to better adjust to Chilean life.

Visiting the Capilla Jesús Vida Nueva in one of the poorest

areas of Santiago had a great impact on me. The small chapel is a satellite of a nearby larger church. The priest from the parish church comes to Capilla Jesús Vida Nueva for one

monthly Sunday Mass. The Jesuits routinely visit the parish to offer Mass, guidance, leadership and support. One night when we visited parish community leaders, it became clear to me how tightly knit they are and the important role the Jesuits play in supporting such a vibrant community. As we got to know one another through conversation, food and laughter, I noticed the joyful atmosphere the Jesuits have helped create. Community members have almost nothing yet are truly happy, loving life and each other. I contrasted this to what I often observe at home, where we frequently have so much but experience desolation and sadness.

While reflecting on my time with the Jesuits, I came to

further appreciate the unique ways they are immersed outside university walls to profoundly affect the poor and marginalized. I found myself wondering: What should we learn from them?

There’s no question Marquette needs to continue to

These two key leaders will help our campus provide paths for students, faculty and staff to be immersed in faith activities and meaningful service in our community. There’s also no question Marquette is making a difference. In July, Marquette was one of five universities (from more than 100 nominated institutions) selected to receive the 2016 Higher Education Civic Engagement Award from The Washington Center, a nonprofit organization.

What more can we do? How can the Marquette community

more innovatively serve others in Milwaukee and around the world? I know our alumni selflessly dedicate thousands of hours to serving those in need. From my experiences with alumni who return for Alumni Awards Weekend each April, I know that dedication to service continues throughout their lives.

Olanrewaju Awosika, a senior majoring in Spanish for the health professions, and Dr. Richard Taylor, a Marquette professor of philosophy, received Fulbright recognition this year.

a sociologist and politician in Hungary before emigrating to the United States in 1948. “I plan to reconstruct Kovrig’s life between his arrival in the United States in 1948 and his death in 1962. … It is my firm belief that this will contribute to the rediscovery of an undeservedly forgotten scholar, his works and thoughts,” Petrás wrote on her Fulbright application. Her visit is hosted by Raynor Memorial Libraries.

Fulbright’s bright lights Colombia and Azerbaijan are experiencing Marquette spirit with Fulbright Student Award winners Olanrewaju Awosika and Robert Borowik working as English teaching assistants and cultural ambassadors for the United States. The same rich cultural swap that sent Marquetters overseas and put philosophy professor Dr. Richard Taylor on the road for a summer in Istanbul also brought Hungarian researcher Dr. Éva Petrás to campus for much of the fall term. Olanrewaju Awosika, a senior majoring in Spanish for the health professions in the Klingler College of Arts and Sciences, is at Universidad Simón Bolívar in Barranquilla, Colombia. “Since I hope to attend graduate school for public health, I am interested in a community project that promotes health education or raises health awareness,” Awosika says. Robert Borowik, a senior triple majoring in secondary education, history and economics in the College of Education, is in Azerbaijan. “I specifically chose Azerbaijan because it was formerly part of the Soviet Union. Ideally I would like to attend graduate school to study Eastern European history after my Fulbright service ends,” he says. Dr. Éva Petrás, a researcher at the historical archives of Hungarian State Security, is studying the works of former Marquette Professor of Philosophy Bela Kovrig, which are part of the collection of the Slavic Institute at Raynor Memorial Libraries. Kovrig was

FULBRIGHT FIRSTS These Fulbright holders follow the path set by faculty and students who traveled far to extend the boundaries of their study and research. • Faculty at Marquette have earned

89 Fulbright Core awards since 1952, beginning with Dr. Donald Gallagher of philosophy, who traveled to Belgium.

• The first student Fulbright award winner was Peter C. Smith, Arts ’65, who studied in the Philippines in 1965.

• Since Smith’s “first” for Marquette, another 35 students have claimed Fulbright Student Grants to study internationally.

FIRST INSIDE CUBA Professor of Law Andrea Schneider brought 25 law students and faculty to Cuba for a weeklong cultural immersion, making Marquette one of the first American law schools to visit Cuba since diplomatic relations reopened. Students and professors met experts in Cuban law, politics and the economy. They also got a firsthand look at lifestyle while visiting a garage that specializes in keeping cars from the 1950s on the road and enjoying a hip-hop act who sings about Cuban life. “People were interested in hearing our story, and we were very interested in hearing their story,” says third-year law student Molly Madonia. “I think the skills for later use can be just keep communication open. Develop empathy and listening skills no matter where you are.” With long-standing tensions between the United States and Cuba continuing to ease, an anticipated increase in tourism and foreign investment is bound to change the island nation. The students were pleased to have a chance to see Cuba as it is now. “Havana, for me, looked exactly like I thought — or what I wanted it to look like,” says third-year law student Ned O’Brien.

“The Riviera’s still there, the Hotel Nacional is still there. All the big places from the 1950s are still there. It’s almost like time stopped.” Schneider has led law student groups on trips to Israel and Europe in the past. On this trip conversations between students and Cuban professionals focused on change. Schneider says people were clear in their praise of the reforms. “If we can realize that people — whether it’s across the world or across the table — are more than the very skewed and limited narrative that we have, I think that makes us better lawyers,” she says. m C J

Law students also traveled to Germany for the first summer session in international and comparative law hosted by Justus Liebig University Giessen. Associate Professor Ed Fallone helped lead a group students from the United States, Brazil, Italy, India, Russia and Georgia in comparing the constitutions of their countries.

Connecting around autism

Blending biomedical expertise

Marquette and the Medical College of Wisconsin announced the creation of a joint biomedical engineering department that melds the strengths of both institutions to train the next generation of engineers, scientists and physicians.

T

he department blends Opus College of Engineering expertise in engineering education and research with MCW’s innovative clinical practice and stature as the biggest medical research engine in Southeast Wisconsin. The joint venture will build the region’s reputation as a hub for research in one of the technology sector’s fastest-growing areas and create an international destination for students and faculty who are passionate about biomedical engineering. “It’s a really exciting time for biomedical engineering right now,” says Dr. Lars Olson, interim chair of the newly formed department. “There is an opportunity for real growth at both institutions and growth in the Southeast Wisconsin community. It’s exciting because there will be new collaborations that couldn’t have existed before.” Opus Dean Kristina Ropella, Eng ’85, sees opportunities for more mentorship, new opportunities for women in STEM fields, and a chance

for Marquette and MCW to play a leading role in the establishment of ethical codes in an emerging industry. She says the partnership will boost the college’s already robust efforts to give students the skills that employers are looking for. “Because we’ve listened to what industry needs are, we have a curriculum that works,” Ropella says. The joint department will offer undergraduate and graduate degrees. Students will work in state-of-the-art labs at both campuses. They will have access to hands-on experiences with industry partners, hospitals and clinics, where they’ll work with engineers and physicians focusing on innovations to benefit patients and the community. “There’s a lot of interest from students, who are taking a look at all the increased opportunities they can have here,” Olson says. “Graduate students see a lot more research opportunities. Our industry partners see more opportunities. Our colleagues around the country see more opportunities to come to this department and be able to make a bigger impact.” m CJ

Input, education, outreach: These are priorities set by the newly formed Autism Consortium. A primary goal is to understand the needs of students with autism and how the university community can help. The Autism Consortium at Marquette is proof that innovation can rise out of perceived failure. The consortium, headed by Dr. Amy Van Hecke, associate professor of psychology in the College of Arts and Sciences, started as a project submitted to the Strategic Innovation Fund. It wasn’t selected for funding. “Even though we weren’t funded, the project forced us to get organized,” Van Hecke says. “It also helped us identify people from groups across campus and the community — from faculty and staff to students and alumni — who want to play a role in supporting students with autism.” Alumni bring a particular perspective to the group, according to Van Hecke. “We need input from the entire community, and alumni have an incredible understanding of what it means to live the Marquette mission,” she says. “No matter their level of participation, whether they attend meetings or simply want to join the conversation, we need to hear their voices.” m JL LEARN MORE at marquette.edu/

academic matters

Students learn how the different business disciplines are interrelated in the course’s signature curricular component — an advanced business simulation in which student teams are responsible for operating mock coffeehouses.

Open for business We’re teaching business from day one. Every business freshman enrolls in Business Day 1, a onesemester, three-credit course on business fundamentals.

T

he course exposes freshmen to all the relevant disciplines: accounting, finance, managerial economics, human resources, marketing, supply chain management and IT. Though introductory in nature, the course’s strength is its integrated approach, according to Keyes Dean of Business Administration Brian Till. “It is important that the course be a holistic and integrated view of business,” Till says. “While students get a fairly basic look at the core business disciplines, it is important that students

begin to see how the different disciplines are interrelated.” Those relationships come to bear in the course’s signature curricular component —  an advanced business simulation in which student teams operate mock coffeehouses. Each team selects a CEO and other chief officers to make decisions on everything from sourcing to pricing to hiring to marketing to resolving ethical scenarios. A computer program analyzes and measures performance. Teams are ranked by their success in establishing profitable businesses. As students review their results, learning happens.

This new teaching/learning approach came about though the collaborative efforts of Dr. Mark Eppli, formerly interm Keyes Dean of Business Administration, his Dean’s Council of Excellence and Dean Till. One of the first lessons, according to Kevin Walsh, an adjunct instructor of management who teaches Day 1, is how important it is for the areas of the business to work together. “If one team member decides to offer a two-for-one promotion but doesn’t warn other areas to increase staff and order appropriate supplies, the team has to deal with irate customers, unhappy employees and additional costs due to emergency purchases,” he says. Part of the instruction focuses on helping students gain an understanding for what they bring to a business. “It’s equally important to us, as a Jesuit business school, to work with the students on exploration of self-awareness, character development and leadership, and how those elements factor into personal development,” Walsh says. Dean Till agrees. “Our three pillars are personal attention, experiential learning, and ethics and values. Day 1 exposes students to exactly who we are as a college from the moment they step in the classroom,” Till says. m CS

SOME FU N FACTS

Marquette photographer Dan Johnson documented the 1981 visit in more than 1,400 photographs.

Remembering Mother Teresa’s visit

University Archives maintains the collection of letters between President John P. Raynor, S.J., and Mother Teresa that resulted in her visit.

The canonization of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta in September calls to mind the day in October 1981 when she came here, honoring us with her presence and honoring us further still by accepting the university’s highest honor for discovery, the Père Marquette Discovery Award.

Dr. Susan Mountin, director of Manresa for Faculty, coordinated 180 Eucharistic ministers who participated in the 1981 Mass.

It took the perseverance of President John P. Raynor, S.J., to bring about the visit, made possible after three years of sending letters to India. The labor proved worthwhile the moment Mother Teresa’s sandaled foot touched campus and the ground became hallowed for 9,500 witnesses who attended the conferral Mass at the Milwaukee Arena and another 1,500 who watched via closed circuit television. In honoring Mother Teresa, Father Raynor said: “Through her life and example, people of every country in the world have discovered that the light of God shines again in our time. She has discovered God in the poorest of the poor. Like Père Marquette, she does indeed map the unknown regions of man’s need to give and receive Christ’s own charity.” m JMM

The Père Marquette Discovery Award has been presented only five times in Marquette’s history.

SCHOLARSHIP HONORS ONEIDA WWI HERO An endowed scholarship named for Dr. Josiah A. Powless, Med 1904, will support the recruitment and retention of Native American and underrepresented minority students at Marquette. Donors gave $67,500 for the scholarship and the university will continue fundraising to support Native American students. Powless was a World War I hero of the Oneida Nation and the first Oneida graduate from Marquette College, which became Marquette University. Native American students, including Emily Sexton, a junior in the College of Business Administration, celebrated the university’s move to inaugurate this scholarship. Sexton calls it a meaningful step toward creating an enhanced experience and environment at Marquette for more students. “This scholarship will signal to potential Native students that their experiences and cultural background are highly valued here,” she says. “It shows that their uniqueness is not just another box to check on an application. Rather, their presence will be celebrated and supported as they explore all that Marquette has to offer.” The scholarship was announced at a homecoming celebration for Marquette’s Native American alumni held during Mission Week 2016. Members of the Powless family attended the historic event with Oneida Nation Chairwoman Cristina Danforth. A Marquette eagle staff was created and conferred on current Native American student leadership at the event. The staff is a revered cultural symbol and tradition in Native American communities throughout North America. Here it represents the intergenerational connection of past and future accomplishments of Native American students and alumni. m CP

Helping people like Prange-Morgan resume activities they love is the objective of an Adaptive Abilities Club formed by Dr. Tina Stoeckmann, clinical associate professor of physical therapy in the College of Health Sciences. In addition to helping people who have disabilities participate in sports and other activities, a side benefit was quickly apparent to Stoeckmann. The club offers an extraordinary educational component for physical therapy students who help with the club. “As physical therapy students, they’re usually seeing or learning about people in crisis,” Stoeckmann says. “It can give them a skewed perspective of what ‘disability’ means. In the club, they get to see people having fun and enjoying recreation.” Marquette’s club supports the group founded by Prange-Morgan with volunteer assistance. “The Marquette group is amazing,” Prange-Morgan says. “They bring a passion, enthusiasm and energy to what we do.” Adaptive activities cover a gamut, ranging from skiing to tubing to soccer and more. Mike and Crystal Johnson’s daughters, Abigail and Cate, have been involved in adaptive events for a decade, beginning with downhill skiing 10 years ago and branching out into softball, soccer and rock climbing. “Our ladies are nonverbal, with undiagnosed physical and developmental disabilities,” Mike Johnson says. “With that said, they’re healthy, happy and enjoy participating in a wide variety of events. The Marquette students challenge them to have fun while doing their best in an environment of unconditional support and encouragement. These experiences have been beneficial for our entire family.” m JL

Fitts and Hunter are principal investigators on a five-year project to explore if systematically encouraging older people to exercise — and, more important, to exercise in ways different from those of young people — can help them stay stronger longer. Funded by a $2.8 million NIH grant, the project will combine the everyday with the cutting edge. Two groups of people in their 70s and 80s will perform two types of strength training. The cutting-edge part will involve the use of high-tech tools to examine the muscle cells and nervous systems of both groups to learn what difference the workouts make. Fitts and Hunter think it is the muscles —  learning how to match exercise routines to the changes in muscle physiology that come with age — that hold the key. m

When a dingy reached a certain point along the coastline of Lesvos, an island off the coast of Greece, Craig dashed into the cold water to reach and pull women and men, mothers, children and fathers onto terra firma. Sopping wet refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq were welcomed at this transit camp outside Skala Sykamineas run by Lighthouse Relief. They received dry clothes, food, a spot to rest for the night and transportation to a stage-two camp farther inland. In these moments, often awakened by an alert that a vessel had been spotted on the water, having slept in a wetsuit so as to be ready to run on a moment’s notice, Craig found what he craved since attending a lecture his junior year at Marquette. The lecture by a lawyer who worked on human rights issues in the Middle East helped shift Craig’s academic intention from pre-med to law. “My time at Marquette solidified that,” he says. “I had a general interest in international affairs; I knew I wanted to live and work abroad.” Craig studied law, deepening particularly his knowledge of international humanitarian law, at the University of Iowa before graduating in 2013. The day after entering the Iowa Bar, he boarded a plane and flew to the city of Ramallah on the West Bank to work on regulatory policies and issues. “We worked with


ON FEB. 26, CRAIG BLOGGED: “A SMALL SPEEDBOAT DRIVEN BY Israeli and Palestinian groups, NGOs, negotiators. The policy work was extremely interesting to me, but I was pretty much stuck in an office. I had a strong feeling that I wouldn’t do the work justice without experience working on the ground. Worried is too strong a word to describe how I felt, but I was anxious,” he admits. “I wanted to do refugee work.” After a good friend joined Lighthouse Relief, she wrote to tell Craig that the work she was doing on the shores of Lesvos was exactly the type of refugee work he sought. After reading her note, Craig says, “I gave notice.” He was on the ground in Greece on Jan. 4, 2016, joining hundreds of volunteers committed to serving refugees arriving daily at Skala Sykamineas, the primary destination on Lesvos for boats ferrying refugees from Turkey. “I learned a lot about humanitarian work from those people and will continue to apply it as I move forward in the field,” he says. According to Craig, smugglers in Turkey supplied all the boats. “The boats came over mostly independently with the smugglers putting a refugee in charge of driving a boat across the waters with no prior boating experience,” he says. “Some were just lucky enough to have the Coast Guard or a rescue boat lead them safely to shore.” They reached the camp that sits amid an olive grove, with trees separating tents occupied by families from tents providing a first aid station, small kitchen and toilet facilities. Craig worked daily with teams of volunteers to expand these amenities and build a women’s clothing distribution tent, a prayer tent and picnic tables. They installed solar lighting and a tent equipped with a wood-burning stove and gas heaters to warm hypothermic patients. Nights were spent in a vigil, watching the coast. “The single biggest misunderstanding is who the refugees are,” Craig says. “These people are doctors, lawyers, teachers, architects, mechanics and the list goes on. They make the same sacrifices and take the same risks that we would if we were forced into the same situation.” Craig describes using his best Arabic language skills to help a man understand the registration process and what would happen next. “He just smiled,” Craig says. “He was really saying, ‘I have my kids and wife, I left home, I don’t know where I am or where I’m going, I have no money, my cell phone is dead so I can’t research anything.’ That would be so frightening to any one of us, and that’s everyone over here.” Throughout those weeks in Lesvos, Craig kept home and family up to date with a sporadic blog. On Feb. 26, he wrote: “A small speedboat driven by a Turkish smuggler sped toward the Greek shore, forced 19 or so passengers into the water and sped back to Turkey.” His March 9 post described the situation at Eko Station, a camp that sprang up organically at a gas station where buses of refugees were stopped and suffered interminable delays: “This is not Skala Sykamineas anymore. … The Greek border with Macedonia is miserable. … People pulling wet clothes, plastic, anything out of

the dumpsters in order to burn it to keep warm. I’m not sure I put a tarp on a tent without hearing a little kid coughing or crying inside.” Craig learned that what may be described in this country as a political situation is a humanitarian issue on the ground. “When we see people coming across those waters, carrying their fourmonth-old baby or freezing cold themselves, and they’re doing this because, despite the dangers of that journey, it’s a better option than staying home in their war-torn country, we really have a deep understanding of why we’re here.” Craig’s travel visa ran out April 2. Reluctantly he returned home to Cedar Rapids to renew his passport — and apply for another overseas post. He joined ACTED, the Agency for Technical Cooperation and Development, and is now based in Jordan while focusing on aid issues in Yemen. In a recent report on the situation in Yemen, the United Nation’s Human Rights Council noted: “The large-scale internal displacement, which is currently affecting some 2.5 million people, is expected to continue, if not increase, in 2016.” Alarming, yes, but not a deterrent for Craig. The experiences of the past year affirmed his choice to abandon the safety net of the office. “I can’t describe in a way to convey how big this is, this crisis specifically, but also all types of conflict where we have a moral responsibility to help people who are going through heinous experiences,” he says. m

A GRIEVING BROTHER SETS OUT TO FIND RENEWED HOPE AND PURPOSE IN GUATEMALA.

POTHOLES AND PIVOTAL MOMENTS One minute I was going about life by simply fulfilling my daily wants and needs. The next minute, I was reeling from a tidal wave. It was my 20th birthday, and all that I had taken for granted changed when my brother Joe’s drug addiction stole his life and his sweet smile from our family. After laying Joe’s body into the cold Wisconsin autumn earth, I stared at his gravestone searching for meaning when my gaze fixed on the etched dates marking his birth and death. My thoughts were angry, confused and even selfish. Why did he have to die so young? Why in such a tragic way? Why on my birthday? BY

Suddenly my thoughts shifted and I began to think about the space of time between the two etched dates, the space representing the days of Joe’s life and how he had used his days to touch the world. Then I thought about my own space, 1973–20??. My space had no purpose yet — at least none I was aware of — and I’d already lived roughly one fourth of my life. I wanted to define my space. I wanted my space to represent making a difference. I had to discover my purpose, and that required taking a leap of faith and reaching beyond my comfort zone. Within three months of Joe’s death, I stood at a departure gate at Mitchell International Airport in Milwaukee waiting for my flight to Guatemala, hopeful this trip would be a beginning. A day later I walked across a mud-packed playground covered with rain-filled potholes and entered the first of four corrugated tinroofed, cinderblock classrooms in Santo Tomas, Milpas Altas, Guatemala. The principal introduced me to the children, then turned to me and said, “OK, teach.”

T

hat was 23 years ago, but time hasn’t faded my memories. I remember seeing awe in the eyes of the children in my class, and I remember all of the students crowded at the doorway, waiting to get a look at me. I felt like a deer in headlights. The thoughts racing through my mind while I turned pink with embarrassment nearly froze me: “What am I doing? I’m not a teacher. What did I get myself into? I don’t even speak Spanish.” My comfort zone was in a different time zone. Luckily my defense mechanism kicked into action. I looked out on the class and calmly said, “uno,” and invited the children to repeat the word. “Uno,” they responded softly. I then said, “one,” and they responded awkwardly, “gwon.” I said, “dos,” with a little more confidence, and they responded, “dos,”

with similar confidence. I shouted, “two,” which they followed with a loud, “two.” I then roared, “tres, three.” That’s when it happened. They roared back, “three.” Could it be this easy? Could I be teaching? Could they be learning? That day in a simple Guatemalan mountain village classroom, the teacher in me was born. I taught numbers, letters, colors and simple phrases (all learned from my $4.95 How to Speak Spanish in 30 Minutes a Day handbook). In the morning, I taught kindergarten. My little Guatemalan students became my saving grace. The songs and dances, tears and laughter worked to melt away my grief. I was discovering the truth in Mahatma Gandhi’s quote: “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” When I wasn’t teaching, I was riding buses and walking around the market, asking questions, making a fool out of myself by floundering through my “Spanglish.” I had found my addiction; I was addicted to serving others, although the beauty of the matter was that I was the person receiving gifts. I learned that stepping out of your comfort zone to help someone is the most potent teacher, that life is an opportunity to discover purpose in the spirit of service. The Gospel message to reach out to others in compassion, solidarity and service is not only a responsibility and calling. It is also a recipe that nourishes the soul. I wanted more and began searching for more opportunities to serve around the world. I sought wisdom from mentors. I dusted off

Losing his brother Joe, pictured here, set Jeff Wenzler off on a journey to discover his purpose in life.

my Bible and took classes in education, graduating from Marquette and going on to school at Boston College, where I earned a master’s of education degree. This purpose-filled path led my search for understanding the human condition to a corner of Kingston, Jamaica, to a landfill where everything unwanted decays. The poorest of the poor survive by searching the landfill for food, for materials to build homes, for anything with trade or sale value. The smells are unbearable and the conditions incomprehensible. Hidden among cesspool trenches, heaps of scrap metal and mounds of decaying trash live a resilient people who have a tireless work ethic, uncanny hope and tremendous faith. One day after spending time with a boy playing with a soccer ball in the dump community, I noticed he chased the bus we rode back to our suburban comfort. I wanted to know where he lived. I wanted to walk in his shoes — if only for a short while. I wanted to share with others how they too could become addicted to service. I didn’t know it at the time but that desire would grow into the concept for filming a documentary about people who live in significant poverty. Our film, 10 Dollar Perspective, highlights the hope and resilience of a few of our six billion global brothers and sisters who live on less than $10 a day. To this day I live with the wise words of Father Michael Himes, one of my professors at Boston College, echoing through my heart and mind. Father Himes said that when contemplating your calling in life, ask yourself three questions: What brings you joy? What are you good at? And how does that joy benefit others? This simple reflective exercise moved me to found an international servant leadership organization called Pivotal Directions to unite people across socioeconomic lines,

to walk with the faith-filled people of the Riverton garbage dump community and hopefully soften the barriers surrounding a marginalized people. My talent is the humble courage that allows me to step outside of my comfort zone and lead others to new perspectives. The benefit is determined by those who hold hands in solidarity and create a new reality of dignity. When I sat down to write my book, The Pivotal Life: A Compass for Discovering Purpose, Passion & Perspective, I began unpacking all the pivotal moments on my journey in order to share with others how they, too, can find the meaning of life, love, family and career purpose. The “pivotal” moments in life are those that have the power to move us in directions that are at first unimaginable, like stepping into poverty with an open heart. These special moments may not make sense at first, but we should still allow them to touch our hearts so that something much bigger can take over and push us forward with a greater awareness of purpose. Living a pivotal life is not about avoiding adversity. It is about knowing how to learn from and live with the adversity and challenge that are part of every life. Recognizing that I am on a path that intersects with others who also encounter potholes and pivotal moments makes the shared journey more purpose-filled. We are responsible to each other. Ordinary people living for others is an extraordinary life, and the passion that soars through my veins gives me hope that the life I live will truly be called pivotal. m

“DEAR MCCORMICK HALL 22

Fall 2016


L, I WILL NEVER FORGET...” Marquette Magazine

NEARLY 40,000 STUDENTS have called it home since 1967. And one more entering class will unpack in this Marquette icon. The stairs and burdened elevators have been blessed with thousands of benedictions, muttered by parents traipsing up and down bent beneath boxes carried in both directions. The university announced its replacement: a $96 million, 750-bed project scheduled to break ground this year and include two connected residence halls between 17th and 18th and Wells streets. We can raze the roof but not the memories. Here are a few.

After living in O’Donnell for two ▲ months I moved into McCormick on a Friday evening. There Mark Simak told me that Fridays on 5SE are “No Pants Fridays” and proceeded to take off his pants and walk around in his boxers. The tradition of “No Pants Fridays” was born. Michael Barry, Bus Ad ’11 Going for late-night cereal in the dining hall with friends. Dan Reiner, Comm ’16 My favorite McCormick memory is the epic water battle of January 1988. The Cobeen 7th floor women did a squirt gun raid and were met by garbage cans of water tossed into the elevators when they opened. The elevators were turned off for days as a punishment, and it took weeks for the carpet to dry. Rob Fiero, Bus Ad ’91

Met my freshman roommate for the first time on move-in day. First night I woke up screaming in my sleep from a bad dream. She thought I was a crazy person. We ended up living together all four years of college. We have stood up in each others’ weddings, remained best friends and just bought houses six miles apart. Claire (Gindt) Benishek, H Sci ’11 I began as hall minister in McCormick’s I began first year as a coed hall. I lived there for 18 years. I stayed that long because of the great opportunity and privilege to interact with each freshman class and work with outstanding student leaders serving as RAs. Eleven of those years I was the vice president for Student Affairs. Thanks for the opportunity to submit a memory. Rev. Andy Thon, S.J., Grad ’68 I was a transfer student from a school where I’d had a hard first semester. I was so scared that first night but instantly felt at home once I met my roommate and the girls on my floor. They’re still my best friends. Libby Pinkham, Arts ’12

Putting a TV in the bathroom of our ▲ 9th floor triple so we could pick up Cubs games on WGN. Paul Manghera, Bus Ad ’82 McCormick was my home for three years. It’s where I met my best friends and where I helped create a community for freshmen as an RA. The path I have taken may have been very different had it not been for the opportunity I had to live under a roof with over 800 other students. Hannah Yaritz, Comm ’08 I met my best friends and future bridesmaids in 8East. The love of my life lived on 9 (he just doesn’t know that he’s the love of my life — yet). McCormick is where I found myself and fell in love with life.

Jim Love, Comm ’13 I met my wife, best man and two of my groomsmen at McCormick freshman year 1999. Thank you, McCormick!

My favorite McCormick memory was a weekly tradition with Molly Dill Newman and Katie Smith Vertovec. We would get a $5 pizza from Papa Johns and watch Gilmore Girls every Tuesday night.

On move-in day the shape of McCormick confused my dad, and he couldn’t find the car. He reported it stolen. After an hour, we found it one block over. McCormick was the perfect introduction to Marquette — close quarters, wonderful people, vibrant spirit. Thanks for the memories!

My favorite memory was the daily camaraderie with not just my roommate or immediate neighbors but everyone on the floor. We would hang out before heading out for the evening or after a trip to Angelo’s Pizza or the ’Lanche. We entered McCormick as strangers and left as a large family. Jeff Emge, Bus Ad ’97 I was touring Marquette in 2010 with my oldest son and part of the tour was the dorms. Coincidentally, they took us to McCormick, even more coincidentally, to the second floor. I got to see my old room for the first time in 30+ years. Albert Correa, Arts ’81

After we won the 1977 NCAA ▲ Championship, phone books were thrown out the windows. It looked like papier-mâché all over the grass. George Polk, Bus Ad ’80 One floor below me, my future husband was moving in. We grew up in the same neighborhood and shared a circle of friends but didn’t know each other. Our paths crossed freshman year, and 16 years, two boys, a house and a dog later, we celebrate McCormick Hall for the opportunity to fall in love.

I met five beautiful, intelligent and driven women freshman year who became lifelong friends, including my roommate who I had never met before move-in day. Thank you, McCormick, for bringing us together! Kathleen Fugler, Comm ’11 The club football homecoming parade down Wisconsin Avenue when we took the screen off our window and walked out onto the mezzanine for a better view. Then one of the guys filled a wastepaper basket with water balloons and we threw water balloons at unsuspecting students as they walked up the sidewalk to the building. We had several direct hits. ... It was about a week later that all the screens were locked on the building.

I remember baking cupcakes in the ▲ basement kitchen with my roommate (while we switched off keeping our heads in the freezer to stay cool). We used the cupcakes as a way to break the ice with others. Catherine Nelson, Ed ’14 I moved into McCormick in 1968, the first year the entire dorm was used. I remember attending midnight Mass in the basement chapel and using the only sauna on campus, also in the basement. William Czarnecki, Arts ’72 Our 1993 McCormick T-shirt motto, “16th Street Tour,” that had times indicating when the fire alarms were pulled. We learned to always have jackets and shoes handy. Michael McCleish, Arts ’96

I dropped my daughter off her freshman year in 1995. The elevators were overworked. We piled her belongings on the McCormick grass with other freshmen and then uncomfortably carried them up five flights of stairs.

My friends James Porter, Erica Harmon and Sheena Driver were all in the basement playing Ping-Pong. Erica and Sheena started playing and Sheena hit a return that bounced high. Erica jumped in the air for an easy smash and did a complete belly flop on the table. We couldn’t stop laughing. Did I mention she completely missed the ball?

Standing on the roof and watching the spontaneous parade of cars head downtown when the Brewers won their first American League Championship in 1982.

Every weekend, without fail, they’d shut down two of the three elevators. Then the one they left in operation would break down. Those of us on the 11th floor used to love walking up on Saturday nights. By the 6th floor, the stairwell looked like the field at Shiloh.

I lived in McCormick Hall for two years in 1975 and 1976. Both years I lived on the top floor — 12. My first year we debated endlessly on the name and design of our floor shirts. When the smoke cleared and the votes were counted, the winner was “Top of the Garbage Can.” John Van Lieshout, Arts ’78, Law ’81

POLITICAL INSIDER TED KNAP COVERED FIVE PRESIDENTS AND COLLECTED ENOUGH MEMORIES TO FILL A BOOK. Ted Knap, Jour ’40, watches the 2016 presidential campaign drama with knowing eyes, and it chafes a bit. “Oh, I watch it, damn right. If I were writing a column. …” he says wistfully. Knap covered five presidents, seven “wannabees” and 14 national political conventions as chief political writer and White House correspondent for Scripps Howard News Service from 1966 until he retired in 1985. His “White House Watch” column premiered in 1973 and was syndicated to more than 100 newspapers nationwide.

One wall of 8x10-inch photographs in the living room of his Oconomowoc, Wis., home testifies to this journalist’s history as a member of the national press corps. The photography tells a one-dimensional story; it takes Knap’s personal memories to breathe in the other dimensions. About Robert Kennedy, whose 1968 campaign Knap covered, he quips, “He or Ethel was always brushing his hair.” Knap was home in bed the night Robert Kennedy was killed by assassin Sirhan Sirhan — an enormous regret of his career. About Hubert Humphrey, Knap remembers a moment during his presidential campaign when the press and candidate joined in a circle to sing “We Shall Overcome.” About President Richard Nixon, Knap recounts the tension surrounding a nearly disastrous

visit with Russian General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev at the Kremlin in 1972 to negotiate a nuclear arms reduction treaty between the two world powers. “It was touch and go,” he says. After seven days of negotiations, when collapse seemed eminent, then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger suddenly appeared at midnight in the doorway of the press room and delivered a jubilant one-hour briefing on the first Strategic Arms Limitation Treaty and Anti-ballistic Missile Treaty, providing every detail without notes. Knap went to work to write a news story explaining what this meant from a national security standpoint. “And then I did a political analysis piece, because this was an election year so it was going to have an impact on the election,” he remembers. He finished writing and looked up to see it was getting light outside. “I realized I had just worked right through my birthday.” The witness-to-history position of national correspondent came by following what Knap calls a “well-worn track.” Journalism found him, thanks to prodding by a teacher at Messmer High School in Milwaukee who spotted skill in his writing. For one homework assignment Knap traveled to Chicago to cover the 1936 Democratic National Convention with press credentials for his school newspaper. “I think that’s when I decided I didn’t want

to be just a journalist but a political writer and go to Washington,” he says. He came to Marquette as a 16-year-old freshman. “Scholastically I had no trouble, but socially it was terrible. You know the difference between a 16-year-old boy and an 18-year-old girl?” he asks. “Lots of luck getting a date.” Possibly that empty social calendar opened time for Knap to commit to work in Sears Roebuck Department Store’s credit department. He says the experience taught him that you can ask people any questions about themselves and you’ll get answers. “That emboldened me. I got to the point that asking questions became much easier. Thank you, Sears Roebuck,” he says. After graduating he worked as a reporter and editor at the Waukesha (Wis.) Freeman,

“THE PRESS IS TREATED LIKE THE VILLAIN. I LIKE TO SAY, ‘IF NOT THE PRESS, WHO WOULD TELL US?’”


POLITICAL INSIDER

The wall of photos behind Ted Knap provides historical context to his years covering U.S. presidential politics.

with a four-year interruption due to serving in the U.S. Army, then the Indianapolis Times before being promoted by Scripps Howard to cover the White House. In Washington, D.C., he gained a reputation for being dogged for asking the questions: Why? What will that mean? Who will it help? “I enjoyed the camaraderie of the press and the politicians,” Knap says. “At that time

there was a rise in adversarial journalism, which I applaud — but that’s not me. I don’t start out with the premise that this guy is a crook. I start out with the premise that he’s like most of us, a good guy. In most cases public officials are in that business because they think they can help.” He was on the USS Hornet when Nixon was present to welcome the Apollo 11

COVERING FIVE ADMINISTRATIONS Ted Knap, Jour ’40, chief political writer and White House correspondent for Scripps Howard News Service, covered five U.S. presidents (from left): Lyndon Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan. “I believe there should be an arm’s length relationship between journalists and politicians. So you can be friendly, be friends, be polite, considerate — but you have to watch everything, be careful. It doesn’t mean I’ll do anybody a favor, but I will be considerate,” he says.

astronauts home after the space module splashed down in the Pacific Ocean. He stood ready at Camp David while President Jimmy Carter worked to hammer out peace agreements between Israel and Egypt with Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar El Sadat. “There were four or five days at Camp David when it looked like it was shot, not going anywhere,” he remembers. “Then they managed to get a breakthrough, and do you know that peace treaty is still in effect?” He covered Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, interviewed former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt twice, interviewed actress-turned-U.S. Ambassador Shirley Temple and Princess Grace of Monaco and the list goes on. He never wrote a book about those years or those conversations, but thinks maybe he should have. He is proud of the role he played in chronicling history and can’t understand today’s disrespect for the media. “The press is treated like the villain,” he says. “I like to say, ‘If not the press, who would tell us?’ I took very seriously my job and privilege to inform the people, to tell them the truth as I saw it. If as a journalist, if you do nothing else except show the light, inform the people, that’s an accomplishment. That’s doing something for your country. The press doesn’t get much credit for that.” m

Knap was president of the White House Correspondents Association from 1973–74, the year the Watergate scandal “broke open.” He ignored tradition at the White House dinner of toasting only the president. Instead he raised his glass to toast both President Richard Nixon and Vice President Gerald Ford. “I did not want the White House correspondents associated with booing the president. I thought that would be inappropriate. He was our guest, afterall,” he says.

On the thick green lawn typically shared by students laughing, tossing Frisbees and footballs on a Friday afternoon, came hundreds of students, faculty, staff and neighbors to pray for those who died or were wounded in the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, Pa. Some wept softly on this, America’s National Day of Prayer and Remembrance. Others stood straight and stoic while a color guard presented the flag. Then-president Robert A. Wild, S.J., reminded the wall-to-wall congregation filling Westowne Square to find hope in God’s message as told by the prophet Jeremiah: “I know the plans I have in mind for you — it is Yahweh who speaks — plans for peace, not disaster, reserving a future full of hope for you.

The company was launched the summer of 2012 with a portfolio of just seven startups. Now the portfolio boasts 42 successful high-growth startups that have raised $80 million in follow-on financing and brought 400+ jobs to Wisconsin. There are plenty of examples. They include EatStreet, which Kirgues describes as “the third largest online food court in America.” Working late? Order takeout at Eatstreet.com.

With advice from gener8tor’s league of mentors, the startup UnderStory pivoted from developing a device to measure air pollution across neighborhoods to a device to track weather phenomena and provide real-time information about storm intensity, an important change for property insurers. The company has raised $9 million in financing to date. These are great wins, Kirgues admits, but he also laments, “We blow it a lot, too.” It’s hard not to when you’re speculating a lot —  on people, their theories and their execution. Gener8tor opens an application process every six months during

Keeping skaters sharp

G

Sarah Arnold, Grad ’14, brings passion

for figure skating to work.

Growing up on a pond in Milwaukee, Arnold enjoyed spending time on the ice. At age 11 she aspired to skate competitively and fulfilled that dream by competing on a synchronized skating team as a student at Miami University of Ohio. “Figure skating definitely takes every ounce of muscle and coordination, between strength, endurance and flexibility,” she says. Enjoyment of the physically taxing life of an athlete is far from the only opportunity Arnold found to stay involved with skating. She earned a master’s degree in leadership studies with a focus on sports leadership at Marquette. In addition to her studies, she gained good experience working for Marquette’s Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and interning at the Pettit National Ice Center in West Allis, Wis. All of that helped Arnold start her dream career as athlete development manager with U.S. Figure Skating. She coordinates camps for young skaters that teach skating skills — from endurance to jumps and spins — to make sure the skaters have the best possible experience. “I’m really in charge of the logistics of prepping our younger athletes,” she says. She also works to keep the conversations alive online. “My role is to oversee our social media platforms for our U.S. Figure Skating DREAM mentorship program.” Though synchronized skating won’t be a part of the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, Arnold and her colleagues are pushing for the 2022 Games. In the meantime, their skaters hope to compete at the World Championships. Arnold’s advice to young athletes is simple: “Don’t be afraid to explore lots of options.” — Megan Knowles, student-intern

Bats to elephant ears

T

Marjee Chmiel, Arts ’99, Grad ’03, knows

how bats find food in the dark.

Thanks to her, students across America learn pretty cool things about bats, crash dummies and elephant ears. Chmiel brings bat science — really many of the experiences of the Smithsonian Institution — to science classrooms in her job as director for curriculum and communications at the Smithsonian Science Education Center. Chmiel remembers discovering her own fascination with science at age 5, when a neighbor introduced her to dinosaurs. She realized then that the world is more strange and amazing than she could ever imagine. Now she helps teachers create a similar sense of discovery in the classroom by creating curriculum inspired by the Smithsonian. “One of the things we strive to do here, as we’re working with the curriculum, is to think carefully about how scientists and engineers use technology in their day-to-day lives to solve problems,” Chmiel says. “The thing that’s really fun for me is thinking about what that means for a kindergartener or a first-grader.” That means elementary students are conducting experiments and solving problems caused by erosion using sand tables in the classroom to represent construction sites in Wisconsin. They’re exploring what elephants’ ears reveal about where they live, how bats find food in the dark, and what we learn from a crash test dummy during an impact. “It’s thinking about how to translate that into something visual but still quantitative and start getting students thinking about how technology can be a portal into getting information,” she says. “But the students are really the most important part of that system of tools because they’re the decision-makers and the thinkers.” — Lauren Brown, student-intern

Marquette + Milwaukee learning and growing together

1 WAM Spring 2016 PRESS V1.indd 1

Vouchers’ impact noted I was interested and pleased to read of Kathleen Cepelka’s work with Milwaukee’s Catholic schools. The salient point I found was that many of her efforts have been facilitated by the first in the nation private school voucher program. Apparently this has stood the political and legal tests in that city and is proving to be a boost for the education of many of your youth. It is not so in many parts of the nation where such efforts have failed legal tests, usually driven by a left-leaning legislature and/or court system that recoils from any state connection to religious endeavors based on a very broad interpretation of the separation of church and state powers. Any attempts that can be interpreted to undermine the powers of the public school system and its very powerful teacher unions is defeated. The secular and liberal agenda that often dominates in the university environment and faculty is one that assists in preventing the widespread implementation of a voucher system. If so, that is ironic, since many college students are supported by government-provided Pell Grants, which they can use at a university of their choice, including religious ones. JOHN F. QUILTER, BUS AD ’70

In the article “School Work” in the spring edition of Marquette Magazine, the following statement was made: “In the city of Milwaukee thousands of parents have taken advantage of the school choice program … to send their children to private schools [including Catholic schools] with public money, rather than tuition, paying for each child.” This voucher program would appear to be in violation of the U.S. Constitution. The First Amendment’s Establishment Clause prohibits the government from making any law “respecting an establishment of religion.” This clause not only forbids the government from establishing an official religion, but also prohibits government actions that unduly favor one religion over another. In light of that fact, it is difficult to understand why non-Catholic taxpayers should be expected to subsidize Catholic education. TOM DROLSUM, ARTS ’73 EDITOR’S NOTE

The winter issue of Marquette Magazine reached me last Sunday in Bangladesh. … John Neumeier’s “Moment of truth” inspires pride that a Milwaukee-area boy can go far in the world of dance art. “Out of Africa” inspires admiration for those who save lives. It is touching to learn there were doctors and nurses unable to do the “tricky shimmy” for putting on and

Thanks for the great spring issue. The “From the Archives” photo of Father O’Donnell has a 1957 Plymouth on the left side of the photo. My husband identified the year and make of the vehicle. It helps to date the picture. Looking forward to my 50th reunion.

I enjoyed many weeknight Masses in that wonderful spot. Stepping into that chapel for only 15 or 20 minutes gave me such strength.

SUSAN SHERIDAN-MACK, SP ’66

I left Marquette in 1986, and I remember how we had to get rides to get groceries. I really thought that this problem had been addressed years ago. Off-campus housing usually plays a part in everyone’s student life and food is a necessity. I would be willing to contribute to this enterprise, and I know many other alumni would, too.

weeks after that meeting! Love the alumni family and the chapel. Go Marquette.

Alumni response is overwhelming whenever St. Joan of Arc Chapel is featured in the magazine. The “Campus Replay” article in the Spring 2016 issue that focused on bringing the chapel to campus in 1966 received many online comments. Here are a few: I work in an ICU where I recently took care of a patient who was a student at Marquette when they were building St. Joan of Arc Chapel. Funny how this article comes out within a few

Fall 2016

Choosing is a constant process: when to rise, what to wear, what to eat, what route to travel to work. Thankfully, some choices are easy. But then there are also life-changing decisions that require discernment. A new graduate has more than one job offer. Which one should he take? Is living near family important or is it good to hold the illusion of complete independence and live far from familiar people and places? A young alumna falls in love. How should she decide if this is the right person to share the rest of her life? A young couple wonders when to take the plunge to parenting. A mid-career professional struggles with choosing to stay in a comfortable job or move on. His internal debate weighs income differential but also his chemistry with co-workers and supervisors and the corporate culture. People approaching retirement have to make choices about when to leave the jobs they love — and may have committed themselves to for decades — contemplating financial security, flexibility to travel or spend time with grandchildren, possibly downsizing to a smaller, less demanding home. And then there are choices about schools or vacations or the next car purchase or voting. Hard choices, important choices. Ignatius of Loyola offered the Spiritual Exercises to help people move through the discernment process, to provide spiritual guidance in times when life-changing and lasting decisions have to be made. In his own life he recognized inner movements, which he called consolation and desolation, that gave him clues and led him to a greater sense of personal freedom. He believed the inner movements reflected God’s will in his life. In the Spiritual Exercises Ignatius lists elaborate rules, some of which focus specifically on life choices and the spiritual freedom to give your life in service of God. He offered the Spiritual Exercises to help young men discern their vocations in the Society of Jesus. But the Spiritual Exercises also provide a certain wisdom to help lay women and men find their own meaning, vocation and path forward. The underlying principles are attractive: Live life practicing the virtues of faith, hope and love; be attentive and aware of the inner feelings and movements within your heart as well as your head; learn to name within yourself what draws you deeper into relationship with God, with the good; and be aware of darker impulses, attitudes and behaviors that lead you away from the good or God. Ignatius fully acknowledged that the world — even in his day — was filled with pain and sorrow, with people hurting other people, with evil, crime, thoughtlessness, jealousy and avarice and that each negative impulse can influence women and men. The Spiritual Exercises provide guidance to help us check out, take moments of silence to breathe freshly, think more deeply, turn away from bad and turn toward the light in ourselves, and make choices that build a just world with concern for the least among us. Spiritual discernment is not a once-and-done proposition. It’s a commitment. It’s ongoing. Ignatius encouraged his followers to practice leading lives of discernment by acknowledging the internal movements that would lead them closer or farther from God’s desires for a world filled with love. It’s a good practice for all of us. By Dr. Susan Mountin, director of Manresa for Faculty in the Office of Mission and Ministry

Ben, Bus Ad ’97, and Jessica (Vanlieshout), Bus Ad ’97, Jagoe “As proud graduates of Marquette, we appreciate the wonderful education we received and the Jesuit values that were so much a part of our student experience – and that are with us still. Marquette basketball is a huge source of pride and connection to the university for us, like it is for so many alumni, and we give back by supporting student-athletes who want to benefit from the same Marquette experience we had and for which we are so grateful.” Ben and Jessica support student-athletes through the Blue and Gold Fund and also support students in the College of Business Administration.
