Alumni for Others

  Introducing Alumni for Others

  Service is at the very heart of the Marquette University   experience. Marquette's exceptional history of community   engagement is rooted in our Catholic, Jesuit mission to   develop leaders through service to others. More than 85   percent of Marquette students participate in service during   their undergraduate experience.

  The Alumni for Others program seeks to promote service   opportunities for our alumni and friends by creating an awareness of need and fostering action   through volunteer service in the local, national and world communities.
