Marquette University and Milwaukee Bucks Announce New Partnership
Jan 30 15
Marquette University and the Milwaukee Bucks announced a new partnership that will include the construction of a multipurpose center that supports college and professional athletes as well as academic research and wellness initiatives. The new venture has a goal of doubling research funding over the next five years and a major gift to establish a mental health research center. The center will provide cutting-edge faculty and student research in sports performance, medicine, nutrition and rehabilitation. It is also expected to combine indoor playing fields for Marquette's lacrosse and soccer programs, as well as an indoor track. The facility also is expected to improve access to recreation and fitness facilities for all students. Marquette University hopes to build the facility on 7.5 acres in the 800 block of W. Michigan St. The university recently acquired the parcel. Funding will come through gifts, corporate partnerships and research grants. The Bucks said the facility will not be the team's training center and is not related to their efforts to build a downtown arena. The team leases space at the Cousins Center in St. Francis. The new training facility is still in the conceptual phase. Design of the facility will be on a six-month ‘fast track’, with construction taking an additional 18 to 24 months. Two buildings on the site will be demolished. Jeanne Hossenlopp will become president for research and Innovation.
