Mission Statement

Aligned with the Marquette University and Division of Student Affairs missions, the Center for Intercultural Engagement supports the moral, ethical, social and spiritual development of our students. We support academic success and empower students to be leaders who contribute to their communities and Marquette University. Our goal is to support the overall adjustment to campus life, improve student retention and graduation rates, and enhance the overall quality of the Marquette experience for culturally and racially diverse students.


Recognizing the richness of diversity and the value of a racially and culturally diverse population, the Center for Intercultural Engagement fosters a culture of respect and appreciation for diversity. We believe this contributes to Marquette’s academic environment by presenting multiple positions and ways to understand the world and its issues. Through campus collaborations, student advocacy, and social justice education, the Center nurtures a diverse and inclusive environment where all students, particularly historically underrepresented students, can thrive as scholars, leaders, and human beings. We aim to support the understanding and appreciation of diversity, and to empower students to be critical thinkers. We seek to graduate leaders who will bring about positive change towards the creation of a more just society.
