Hiring for Mission

Resources for Chairs, Supervisors and Search Committees

The various policies and programs that support hiring for mission at Marquette have been created to assists search committees and others responsible for hiring to consciously and deliberately consider Marquette's mission in the selection process. They bring into focus important questions for search committees and others who are key to the hiring process.

  • What is it about our Catholic, Jesuit, humanistic heritage that we must understand and articulate in order to be true to our identity?
  • What explicit efforts will we make to hire women and men of many religious traditions who can advance our Catholic, intellectual tradition and commitment to faith and justice?
  • Once we have welcomed a new colleague to our campus, how can we support him/her in mission education and engagement?
  • How will all of these efforts ultimately affect students and the transformational education we seek to provide for them?

Mission and Ministry provides basic information for prospective employees in advance of their interview. These materials may be supplemented by mission-related readings that are specific to the position to which the candidate is applying. Chairs, supervisors and members of search committee are also invited to participate in Hiring for Mission Retreats sponsored by the Office of Mission and Ministry.
