Marquette University recognizes and cherishes the dignity of each individual, regardless of age, culture, faith, ethnicity, race, gender, sexual orientation, language, disability or social class. As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, we are committed to finding God in all things and in each other. Each member of the Marquette community is called to treat each other with care and respect, and to value and treasure differences in the spirit of the Jesuit principle of cura personalis, which calls for treating people with respect for their unique qualities, gifts and challenges as individuals.
The GSRC maintains fidelity to the university's Catholic, Jesuit heritage and character by attending to the needs - both social and intellectual - of all students, and by fostering knowledge and justice on issues having to do with gender and sexuality. Marquette University supports the educational and intellectual exploration of issues of gender and sexuality as it works to foster human dignity and justice. The prevention of sexual violence and discrimination based on gender or sexuality are paramount issues that the Marquette community and college campuses across the nation must continue to address with urgency and commitment.
