Student Organizations

Students across Marquette's campus are engaged in student-run organizations whose purpose is to promote peace and justice. These groups are actively making a difference on campus and around the world. We are proud to sponsor, support, and serve as a resource to the various peacemaking and social activism student organizations across campus.

The Center for Peacemaking sponsors two student organizations:


Peacemakers holds weekly gatherings to discuss theories of nonviolence and contemporary social justice issues on the campus, local, national, and global levels, as well as to plan events and demonstrations in response to these issues.

CRS Student Ambassadors

The Marquette CRS (Catholic Relief Services) Student Ambassador Program is a response to CRS's call for Catholic universities to establish organized student involvement with CRS initiatives.

The Center for Peacemaking hires student ambassadors each year to learn about CRS, increase the awareness of CRS on-campus, and contribute to the work of CRS. Expectations for the ambassadors include attending the regional CRS student ambassador training, participating in structured and self-directed learning activities, organizing one major event each semester, and making public presentations to share their experiences and to help recruit the next group of ambassadors.

Other campus groups include:

YES (Youth Empowered in the Struggle)

Students for Justice in Palestine

Students for Justice in Palestine is dedicated to raising awareness on the Palestinian crisis, and the injustice that the indigenous Palestinian people have been facing for so long. They also wish to promote Palestinian culture on campus.

JUSTICE (Jesuit University Students Together in Concerned Empowerment)

JUSTICE (Jesuit University Students Together in Concerned Empowerment) is a student organization dedicated to increasing awareness of social justice issues and taking action to fight these injustices.

Step Up!

The Step Up! Marquette Chapter is dedicated to educating the student population about the history of the 1994 Rwanda genocide.
