You are invited

To help shape Marquette’s future

The search committee for Marquette’s new Vice President for Mission & Ministry invites you to a forum on March 15 from 5–6 p.m. in AMU 305. This meeting is a chance to share important faith-based issues with the committee that you face on campus and want the next vice president to address. Free pizza and beverages will be served.

What is the Office of Mission & Ministry?

The Office of Mission & Ministry heads the overarching spiritual organizations on campus, including Campus Ministry, the Faber Center for Ignatian Spirituality, and the Center for Peacemaking. It provides outlets, like retreats and prayer groups, for students to practice their faith and grow in spirituality.

Faith is an integral part of Marquette’s identity. As a Catholic, Jesuit university, we are dedicated to the search for truth, the realization of justice, and the support of Catholic beliefs and values.

Because Catholicism at its best seeks to be inclusive, the office considers the needs of all, regardless of religion, who share our mission and seek the truth about God and the world. It advocates an education focused on the whole person through the formation of the mind and heart.

Why should I care?

Relying on these principles, the Office of Mission & Ministry strives to provide students with the means for a transformative spiritual experience.

Everyone has a unique religious identity, shaped by personal encounters and traditions, that requires individual needs for spiritual growth.

We want you to be transformed. Only you can tell us how.

(Did we mention there’s free food?)

Your voice matters. Your faith matters.

Help us help you become men and women for others.
