Les Aspin Center for Government

    The center aims to provide a dynamic, rigorous educational experience for Marquette students and others from around the country, and to make a genuine, direct contribution to our nation’s ongoing experiment in representative democracy. Through conferences, symposia, publications and the direct participation of its students, the center provides a unique laboratory for policy examination and the promotion of democratic values by examining how public policy emerges in a modern democratic society and how individual citizens can make themselves heard. Above all, the center seeks to prepare young people to serve the public effectively and ethically, and to counter the growing cynicism toward the processes of representative government.
