Marquette University is a member of the Wisconsin Technology Council. 

Marquette University on Tuesday announced a $1.5 million gift from the Eck Family Foundation to fund projects within the university’s College of Health Sciences as well as an upcoming expansion to the Athletic and Human Performance Research Center (AHPRC).

The portion of the gift earmarked for the College of Health Sciences will focus on highly innovative projects aimed at applying new technologies, novel therapies, and research to help address substance abuse disorders, a press release states, while the portion being directed to the athletic center will support the development of a new men’s basketball practice facility that will be created as part of the building’s expansion.

The first phase of the AHPRC opened in 2019. As the university community continues to build momentum in its Time to Rise campaign, donors have expressed a philanthropic interest in supporting the second phase of the project, university officials said. The facility remains in the fundraising and development phase.
