The McCormick Hall Inclusive Leadership CommUNITY is a freshmen-only program organized to introduce and integrate academic and social learning in a residence hall setting through faculty and staff involvement with the goal of an enriched learning experience for all participants.

This program is designed to develop a community of inclusive leaders who live together on designated wings in McCormick Hall and that welcomes and embraces students from all cultures, religions, and other social backgrounds and identities. The program is open to residential freshman students of any racial, ethnic, or cultural background.

Students enroll in a year-long three credit seminar class that fulfills the core course requirement for diverse cultures, designed to develop students to become leaders who champion cross cultural interaction. Students who successfully complete the class earn 1.5 credits each semester.

How to Apply:

  1. Select McCormick Hall CommUNITY as your first housing preference through the housing application process.

CommUNITY mission statement

CommUNITY is more than a living option for Marquette freshmen and more than a class students take to learn about social justice and leadership. As members of CommUNITY, we are proud to bring our different cultures, races, religions and opinions to McCormick Hall. We do this through our daily interactions with one another; the birthday parties and ethnic celebrations we share; the service projects we take part in; and the discussions and debates we have in class.

Our main belief is that there is always something to be learned, no matter who has the floor in a discussion or what cultural program we attend on the Marquette campus. When we participate in cross-cultural events we do so with an open mind, determined to broaden our knowledge of the world around us. We want CommUNITY to be a cultural experience that challenges students to open up themselves to different ways of thinking and living.
