Marquette's CRS Student Ambassador program is one of the most robust and active in the nation. It is run by and for students committed to advancing global justice, peace, and human dignity.
The Marquette student ambassadors create opportunities for students in every college of the university to meaningfully engage in efforts to alleviate global poverty and support CRS' emergency global relief efforts.
At Marquette, the ambassadors work for the Center for Peacemaking and receive specialized training and support from CRS University, the CRS Midwest Regional Office, and the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Students interested in becoming an ambassador should contact Sherri Walker.
On campus activities include education and awareness, seminars and workshops, prayer vigils, legislative advocacy, CRS Rice Bowl, and fundraising for global emergencies. The ambassadors are also avid supporters of CRS University's "I am the cause. I am the solution." campaign. At Marquette, all of these activities are coordinated as part of the "Be the Relief" campaign, a play on Marquette's motto to "Be the Difference." Follow BeTheReliefMU on Facebook.
