MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Marquette University’s Board of Trustees announced on Wednesday, September 25th that Rev. Robert Wild, S.J., will lead the university as interim president. Wild, who served as president of Marquette from 1996 to 2011, will take over for Rev. Scott Pilarz, S.J.

Father Wild will take over as interim president on Wednesday, October 16th. He will serve as interim president until August 2014, when a new permanent president is expected to be in place.

Father Pilarz said last week that after ten years as a university president at Marquette University and the University of Scranton, he was resigning to pursue other apostolic opportunities.
