Kim Jensen Bohat
Service Learning Program Director
As a Marquette student who benefited from doing service learning, I watched as the text, philosophies and research I read for my classes became real, feasible and concrete. As a teacher in an alternative high school who used service learning, I watched as my students were moved, challenged and changed by their service experiences. As an agency staff member who supervised service learners, I watched as my clients got the extra attention that they so desperately longed for and deserved.
Now as the director of the program, I get to watch it all, as well as supervise to make sure the program continues to make a difference. These experiences helped shape who I am today, and I continue to find fulfillment and passion in service. I would not be happy in a position that offered any less.
Heriberto (Eddie) Godina
Service Learning Program Assistant Director
I am a double graduate from Marquette, receiving my bachelor’s degree in Criminology & Law Studies in 2017 and my master’s degree in History in 2021.
Originally from Chicago and a graduate of Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, service has impacted my career in a variety of ways. As an undergraduate student, I was involved in multiple service oriented opportunities and participated in Service Learning as a service learning student.
After graduating with my bachelor’s degree, I joined the Jesuit Volunteer Corps and, as part of my assignment, was sent to Albuquerque, New Mexico to work as a paralegal for the New Mexico Immigrant Law Center. After JVC, I worked as a paralegal for the National Immigrant Justice Center in Chicago before returning to Milwaukee for my graduate studies. The lessons and experiences as a Jesuit Volunteer, through my work, and as a student have helped shape who I am, and it is my hope that I am able to share these moments with Marquette service learning students.
