Faith at Marquette

As a Catholic university, we are committed to the unfettered pursuit of truth under the mutually illuminating powers of human intelligence and Christian faith.

Our Catholic identity is expressed in our choices of curricula, our sponsorship of programs and activities devoted to the cultivation of our religious character, our ecumenical outlook, and our support of Catholic beliefs and values.

Precisely because Catholicism at its best seeks to be inclusive, we are open to all who share our mission and seek the truth about God and the world, and we are firmly committed to academic freedom as the necessary precondition for that search.

We welcome and benefit enormously from the diversity of seekers within our ranks, even as we freely choose and celebrate our own Catholic identity.

A Graduation Prayer

Loving God
I have knowledge, so will You show me now
how to use it wisely and find a way
to make the world I live in a little better place,
and make life
with its problems
a little bit easier to face.

Grant me faith and courage
and put purpose in my days,
and show me how to serve you
in effective ways.
So my education, my knowledge and my skill
may find their true fulfillment
as I learn to do your will.

And may I ever be aware in everything I do,
that knowledge comes from learning,
and wisdom comes from you.
