Marquette University is a Catholic and Jesuit university located near the heart of downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin that offers a comprehensive range of majors in 11 nationally and internationally recognized colleges and schools. The University has more than 8,... more.
Noting that "our graduate student teaching assistants are students first," Marquette senior communication director Brian Dorrington said via email that "the safety of our students and campus community is our top priority."
"The university has a policy in which it clearly states that it does not tolerate harassment and will not stand for faculty members subjecting students to any form of abuse, putting them in harm's way," Dorrington added.
Asked about the timing of the action, Marquette spokesman Brian Dorrington said the Board of Trustees' met for the first time this academic year on Thursday.

"The HRSA grant is one that decreased annually over its five-year span, requiring the College of Nursing to subsidize the clinic with additional revenue," said Brian Dorrington, senior director of university communication at Marquette.
Dorrington explained that the decision to close in five weeks was made to "coincide with the end of the HRSA grant schedule, as well as the end of the college's facility lease with the City of Milwaukee." Dorrington also said patients were informed that they could go to two of the College of Nursing's other clinics, which run in partnership with the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin at the Northside YMCA, 1350 W. North Ave., and the COA Goldin Center, 2320 W. Burleigh St. Both clinics offer primary care services but not prenatal care or midwifery services.
Brian Dorrington, senior director of communications at Marquette University, told CNA Nov. 21 that the university requires all employees, faculty, staff and student employees, to complete an anti-harassment module "in accordance with federal law and university policy," He added that harassment training "includes the latest changes in law, and workplace diversity training reflects developing regulations."
He said the presentation uses "hypothetical scenarios" are "teaching tools do not necessarily equate to university policy." "They are simply tools to raise awareness of various forms of harassment that could arise," he said, adding that any specific harassment case "would be reviewed on an individual basis." The presentation is from the Austin, Texas-based company Workplace Answers. Dorrington said Workplace Answers has partnered with seven Jesuit universities in addition to other prominent colleges and universities. Dorrington said the university is "taking appropriate steps" to ensure that everyone involved in this controversy is treated fairly in the dispute. He said the university is committed to debate and discussion as "essential elements of our intellectual environment at Marquette, where our faculty and students have the ability to explore ideas, express opinions and participate in discussion."
