1. Sophomores should return to campus with Pathways book

Sophomores returning to campus next month should remember to bring their copy of Pathways to a Life that Counts, which was provided during orientation last year (it has a white spiral binding and a blue cover).

Readings within each mission theme — governance and inclusion, peace and justice, solidarity with others, and stewardship of the natural and human environments — will be used in various classes throughout the duration of your tenure at Marquette. Student and faculty reflections are also included, as well as mathematical reasoning assignments relative to the readings. E-mail if you have misplaced your copy and wish to receive another one. A limited number of replacements are available.

A revised edition of the book will be distributed to new freshmen during orientation.

The book was provided by the “Who Counts?: Math across the Curriculum for Global Learning” program through a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Post-Secondary Education in the U.S. Department of Education.
