Marquette University and Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe College in Hayward have announced a comprehensive partnership that establishes a path for students from the tribal college to attend Marquette, as well as future educational opportunities for students at both institutions.

The Guaranteed Admission Agreement is a cooperative program partnership that allows LCOOC graduates to transfer to Marquette to continue their college education in select colleges. The agreement was signed May 18 in a ceremony in Hayward and included the announcement of a gift by the Eck Family Foundation to endow a scholarship for one LCOOC student each year to attend Marquette.
