At Marquette University, we strive to promote a culture of life that respects the inherent dignity of all, especially those awaiting to be born, the poor, elderly, sick/infirm, immigrants, LGBTQ+ persons, and prisoners. Join our on-campus Respect Life efforts or participate in the annual March for Life.
Members of the Marquette community are invited to explore questions surrounding human life. This exploration should challenge the partisan limitations of our culture and allow us to focus on the invitation of the Gospel. During the academic year, particular Respect Life themes are highlighted through campus programs and activities. Through these initiatives, we invite reflection on ways each of us can better live as men and women for and with others.
Some particular themes for exploration:
Please Note: President Donald Trump’s recent executive order on ‘Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping,' prohibits “divisive concepts” promulgated in federally funded institutions. Therefore, Campus Ministry has redacted certain material and social media so as not to pose a threat to student loans, research dollars and other federally supported programs.
We encourage you to visit the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' website.
