Marquette is a Jesuit Catholic university located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There are approximately 11,000 students (7,500 undergraduates) and 550 full-time faculty at Marquette.
As a Jesuit university, there is a strong focus on community service at Marquette. Service is one of the four pillars in the university's mission statement. It also holds an important place in the Jesuit credos of cura personalis ("care for the whole person") and "women and men for others." Each year Marquette students perform about 189,000 hours of service to the Milwaukee community. The Center for Community Service, located under Student Affairs, coordinates the majority of the student volunteer community service efforts. The Service Learning Program, which began in 1994, is a separate unit, housed within the Office of the Provost as part of the Center for Teaching and Learning, and coordinates community-based learning experiences within courses across the curriculum. The Center for Teaching and Learning also houses Manresa for Faculty, E-Learning, and Faculty Professional Development Workshops and Programs. Collectively, these programs partner with faculty to prepare Marquette students to be agents of change for a global community.
