New, Inclusive Prez for Marquette U

New, Inclusive Prez for Marquette U


After a controversial hiring decision at Marquette University in Milwaukee earlier this year shut out a lesbian professor from becoming a dean, the school will welcome a new president who is outwardly inclusive of its gay campus community.

"There is no room for prejudice on a Catholic campus," he said, according to the MilwaukeeJournal Sentinel newspaper.

In Maythe school rescinded an offer to Seattle University professor Jodi O'Brien to become dean of Marquette University's Klingler College of Arts and Sciences. Some observers thought she was denied the job because she is a lesbian, but Marquette officials said that was not the case.
