Our vision, guided by Marquette's Catholic Jesuit mission, is to engage students in transformational, inclusive education; to help students navigate barriers to learning; and to encourage the holistic development of every student: preparing students to become reflective, conscientious leaders in their communities.
The Division of Student Affairs advances the Catholic Jesuit mission of Marquette University. The Division is comprised of innovative educators who create an inclusive community designed to transform the lives of students through classroom and out of class experiences. These experiences provide a supportive learning environment that encourages all students to participate in thoughtful self-reflection and dialogue, preparing them to fulfill the Jesuit mission throughout their lives. In collaboration with the entire University community, we will commit to this mission in four ways:
- We educate the whole person, in line with the academic mission, promoting intellectual, moral, physical, social and spiritual development.
- We challenge our students and ourselves to embrace Ignatian values, in particular being people for and with others, by building meaningful relationships within a just, inclusive learning community.
- We engage students in developing critical thinking skills, providing them space in which to cultivate a reasoned set of values and ethical standards, and inspiring them to lead lives of responsible citizenship.
- We empower students to advocate for themselves and others in order to navigate barriers, promote social justice and effect positive change in their present and future communities.
