MILWAUKEE – Marquette University’s College of Health Sciences announced Thursday that it has received a $2 million gift from an anonymous donor.
Marquette University stated that the gift will provide scholarships for students in the Physical Therapy program at Marquette and will provide funding for the Neuro Recovery Clinic in the College of Health Sciences.
“The spirit of the Marquette community is unparalleled,” said Marquette University President Michael R. Lovell in a an email release. “Our generous donors enable us to live our mission in service of others in our community every day. This inspirational gift is a testament to the transformational work taking place in the College of Health Sciences and throughout Marquette.”
According to university officials, The Neuro Recovery Clinic, the first of its kind in the state of Wisconsin and one of few in the region, is a state-of-the-art, on-campus training center that provides intensive programming for people living with life-altering brain and spinal cord injuries and illnesses. The gift will help fund equipment, staffing and operational needs for the clinic.
“This gift provides important opportunities for our students and faculty within the College of Health Sciences,” said Dr. William E.

We are extremely grateful to our donor.”
