Opening the Books at Marquette

Following the lead of other university faculties who question administrative scarcity claims that have led to draconian cuts and layoffs, low faculty morale, and losses of shared governance (see:  https://www.chronicle.com/article/the-era-of-artificial-scarcity), a coalition of groups at Marquette University seeks to fund an independent audit of the university’s revenue and expenditures in order gain the transparency that has been lacking in our budget planning process. We hope that the information obtained in this audit will contribute to restoring confidence and trust between Marquette’s administration and its stakeholders while allowing the university to make informed financial decisions as it moves forward.

The funds raised will be used to cover the $5,000 fee of the independent auditor, who has extensive experience providing forensic audits for higher education institutions around the country. The fee covers the following:

- 50-60 hours of research and work
- A written report
- A presentation, which will be made public

If you love Marquette and want to see it thrive, please help us get the information we need.
