Wellness Vision/Mission/Values


To create an employment environment that integrates a healthy lifestyle with the lifelong pursuit of excellence, faith, leadership and service to others.


The mission of the Marquette University Wellness Program is to develop and foster a wellness culture by creating an environment that not only supports and sustains healthy lifestyle choices, but also inspires and empowers individuals to take responsibility for their own health. 




    • Strive to include the needs of a diverse campus community by recognizing individual differences and working to create an environment that supports a healthy and balanced lifestyle that nurtures the mind, body, and spirit.


    • Act as a resource for employees, providing them with the tools and skills needed to empower them to take charge of their own health, while offering support and encouragement when needed.


    • To serve others with care, being sensitive to the health challenges each person faces as well as their unique experiences.

Marquette Wellness Goals

The overarching goal of the Marquette University Wellness Program is to encourage people to LIVE THE HEALTHY DIFFERENCE. To ensure we are following our mission, vision, and values in reaching this goal, the following objectives have been formed:

  • Place health and well-being at the forefront of everything we do to help people be the best version of themselves.
  • Focus program messaging on making a difference in one’s life, and intrinsic reasons for choosing healthy behaviors such as: 1) to feel good, 2) to have more energy, 3) to be happier, 4) to have fun, and 5) to be better able to cope with life’s ups and downs.  
  • Build community both in and outside of Marquette. 
  • Focus on wellbeing initiatives that foster autonomy and opportunities for personal growth, connect people to others, and help people to live purposely.
