MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Marquette University's new president is challenging the Jesuit university to provide greater access to higher education while maintaining excellence.
The Rev. Scott Pilarz was inaugurated as Marquette's 23rd president Friday.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/opDZZt) the 52-year-old Pilarz noted that he was the first in his family to graduate from college. He says 25 percent of Marquette's freshman class this year also are the first in their families to attend college.
A New Jersey native, Pilarz cited some of rocker Bruce Springsteen's songs, telling the crowd, "Marquette, baby, we are clearly born to run."
Pilarz took over officially Aug. 1 from the Rev. Robert Wild, who retired after 25 years.
Pilarz was previously the president of another Catholic Jesuit university, the University of Scranton.
