Marquette University announced Thursday that it has raised $767 million for its “Time to Rise” fundraising campaign, exceeding the goal university leaders set roughly eight years ago for the effort.

Launched privately in 2016, and publicly announced in August 2021, the campaign set out to raise $750 million for the campus’s “Beyond Boundaries” strategic plan, which aims to raise funds for enriching and expanding student opportunities, supporting teacher-scholars, fostering university-wide innovation, and transforming the campus environment. Projects supported by the campaign have included, O’Brien Hall, the $60 million College of Business Administration facility completed in January 2023.

Marquette University President Michael Lovell shared the fundraising news with the campus community during his 10th annual presidential address on Wednesday, while emphasizing that “more significant opportunities and needs remain.” He challenged the Marquette community to drive toward the completion of the campaign in June 2024.
