The Center for Community Service engages students in discerning their role in the struggle for a more just society through opportunities to explore diverse forms of service. Students will develop an understanding of community needs and assets, root causes of social justice issues, and their own identity through personal experiences with the greater Milwaukee community. We serve in solidarity, for and with others, to repair the divisions that injure the human community and impede human dignity. We strive to make a meaningful difference in our community, working in close partnership with community agencies and campus partners.
Marquette strives to develop men and women who will dedicate their lives to the service of others, actively entering into the struggle for a more just society.
Students must let the gritty reality of this world into their lives, so they can learn to feel it, think about it critically, respond to its suffering and engage it constructively.
