Marquette's CRS Global Campus

As a Catholic Relief Services (CRS) Global Campus, Marquette University and CRS are collaborating at the institutional, faculty, and student level to enhance each other's educational, humanitarian, and research activities in service to the world's most vulnerable populations.

Water, Social Impact Innovation and Peacemaking

Marquette's Global Campus priority research areas are water, social impact innovation, and peacemaking. These represent areas of growing global importance in which Marquette has demonstrated expertise and leadership. These areas are also situated at the intersection of multiple CRS key programming areas.

Student Engagement

The CRS Student Ambassador program allows college students to get involved in activities that help to alleviate global poverty. Students also have the opportunity to participate in international travel experiences in which they complete coursework on CRS and visit CRS development projects.

Many Marquette students and alumni have answered the call to "be the difference" by pursuing internships and careers with CRS.

Faculty Engagement

Marquette partners with CRS on bi-directional research and evaluation through joint projects and scholarship. Faculty also utilize CRS' expertise and resources on relief and development, such as the Faculty Learning Commons, to enhance the classroom experience.

Institutional Engagement

An interdisciplinary advisory committee with representatives from Applied Global Business Learning, Campus Ministry, Center for Peacemaking, CRS Student Ambassadors, Division of Student Affairs, Global Water Center, Mission and Ministry, Marquette University Student Government, Office of Innovation and Research, Office of International Education, Office of the Provost, Peace Studies, and University Advancement oversees Marquette's Global Campus partnership.
