Student Organization Training

Ongoing Leadership Development

Leadership is one of the pillars of Marquette. Leadership, in an Ignatian sense, encompasses being a contemplative in action—that is a reflective and active leader who is part of the community.  

As student leaders we want to invest in your formation. All undergraduate student organizations were required to send one officer to 3 trainings in the academic year.

Fall 2024 trainings being planned. Stay tuned!

Amazing Faiths Dinner

All students are invited to the inaugural Amazing Faith Dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the AMU Lunda Room on Monday, Feb. 19, hosted by the Interfaith Conference of Greater Milwaukee in partnership with Campus Ministry. 

This event is a great opportunity for students to connect across religious affiliations, reflect on their life’s experiences and how faith has been a part of their journey, learn more about the faith experiences of others, and enjoy great community over a free meal.  

Counts for 2 trainings.

Email proof you attended to along with a short reflection on the event.

Marquette Civic Dialogues

The Marquette Civic Dialogues Program works to foster deliberation about the pressing issues facing our world today, prepare students to be citizens with purpose, and advance scholarship on civic dialogue. Through our programming and research, we encourage students to "Be the Difference" by engaging differences in political thought and lived experience. 

See the schedule.

If an officer attends one of these, get proof of attendance and submit that via email with a note that outlines what organization you reprsent, what Civic Dialogue you attended, and how it impacted you/what you learned.

Additional Opportunities 

We also recognize that leadership development takes place through organizational engagement in service, conferences, and other educational programming. If your organization has done some internal training, attended a conference, or participated in service, please contact the student organizations team in an email with the following:

  1. Name of training, conference, or service
  2. Date(s) and who participated.
  3. Short paragraph on what participants learned and how their leadership skills were impacted (e.g. what do you now understand better, how have you grown, how have you used new skills or plan to use new skills/knowledge).
