Heartland-Delta Logo

Animated leafThe logo for the Heartland-Delta VI program is the Acanthus leaf -- one leaf, with many irregular sides, shapes and directions but with a central vein that nourishes its growth. In the same way, the 12 universities in the Heartland-Delta group are each unique. But they share in and grow from the Jesuit vision of education that is more than 450 years old.

Collegium
Collegium is a joint effort by 65 Catholic colleges and universities to recruit and develop faculty who can articulate and enrich the spiritual and intellectual life of their institutions. Collegium sponsors annual, weeklong summer colloquies for faculty from its member institutions from universities throughout the United States and Canada. The colloquies provide a collegial environment in which participants from diverse backgrounds, faiths, and disciplines can discuss the sources and implications of a Christian academic vocation. For more information, please contact the Office of Mission and Ministry at (414) 288-1881 or missionandministry@marquette.edu.

Ignatian Colleagues Program
The Heartland Delta Consortium's Ignatian Colleagues Program (ICP) is designed for academic administrators who are capable of and committed to assuming leadership within the Ignatian spiritual and educational heritage and who will sustain their school's Jesuit, Catholic character into the future. The program consists of cohort gatherings, online learning opportunities, an Ignatian retreat, an international immersion experience, and a capstone project. For more information, please contact the Office of Mission and Ministry at (414) 288-1881 or missionandministry@marquette.edu.

Marquette's Mission

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.

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.
