Hi Godsil,

I know a little bit of what you are asking for. Here’s some info.

Marquette University Contact for Advanced Curriculum issue: Carol
Winkel. She’s the community affairs person and knows who you would
contact about that.

Michael Porter’s publication on the Initiative for A Competitive
Inner City. Here’s the website that enables you to download the
publication. http://www.icic.org/vsm/bin/smRenderFS.php?
PHPSESSID=0331419005989e445a127a06faadea0a&cerror=

Also, the Helen Bader Foundation is the driver of this initiatve.
I’m sure that they will have a copy of the publication that they
might be willing to provide. Call there and ask for Kathryn Dunn.

Art Smith from Greater Milwaukee Committee: He is the CEO there.
He’s a great guy, you need no formal introductions to call him. But
is also a driving force behind ICIC. Rajan Shukla works with him at
the GMC.

For the most info on this initiative ARt Smith and Kathryn Dunn can
answer most if not all of your questions.
