The Center for Community Service at Marquette University supports students in incorporating an ethic of service into their lives.
Service is an important part of our identity at Marquette and the Center for Community Service upholds that identity by providing opportunities for students to participate in meaningful and impactful service. We strive to be members and good citizens of the Milwaukee community by engaging with our neighbors and gaining a greater understanding of local and global issues.
The Center for Community Service is housed in the Office of Student Development.

Interesting fact: I speak fluent Polish, and I have a phobia of being chased

Sophomore, Entrepreneurship and Social Welfare and Justice
Hometown: Menomonee Falls, WI
Interesting fact: My biggest pet peeve is when people leave the shower curtain open.
Why I serve: I serve because I have a passion for learning. Viewing service as a learning experience has opened my eyes to so much and changed my worldview. Additionally, my service is motivated by my belief in equality for all people. When people from diverse backgrounds with diverse ideas, beliefs and skills come together, there is so much to learn and so much to be created and greater social change can be achieved.
Talk to me about: Community development, music, social justice, travel, and gourmet cheeses.

Interesting fact: I have moved ten times, I am the second oldest of seven children, and I am obsessed with peanut butter.
Why I serve: I am a people person; when I serve, I am the truest and best version of myself because I am working with others to learn, to grow, and to change. I serve to find hope and to be enlightened.
Talk to me about: Repairers of the Breach, the connection between writing and achieving social change, and getting involved in the Marquette and Milwaukee community.
Marquette undergraduates spend an estimated 455,000 hours in service to the community each year.
