Dear Friends and Colleagues:

Thank you for making Marquette University’s Mission Week 2016, earthjustice: committing to our sacred world a success! We joined with our larger communities of Church and city to more deeply hold the important questions, invitations and actions involved with caring personally and corporately for our sacred earth, her lands, waters, skies and peoples. As Pope Francis reminds us in his powerful encyclical, Laudato Sí, we are called to new dialogue and deep listening about our ecological challenges and the future of our planet and her peoples around the globe.

Dr. Kathleen Coffey-Guenther

Marquette's Mission

Dedicated to serving God by serving our students, faculty, and staff, Marquette University contributes to the advancement of knowledge by searching for truth, discovering and sharing knowledge, fostering personal and professional excellence, promoting a life of faith, and developing service leadership in others.

At Marquette, we believe the pursuit of excellence is a lifelong endeavor and education needs to encompass the whole person, through formation of the mind and heart. We are committed to the unfettered pursuit of truth under the mutually illuminating powers of human intelligence and Christian faith. All members of the Marquette community, from every faith tradition, give concrete expression to these beliefs by giving of themselves in service to those in need.
