Mission Week 2007

The Challenged to Choose:
The Courage to Act
February 2 - 10

The theme of Mission Week 2007 was: "The Challenged to Choose: The Courage to Act." This year we stopped to ask ourselves how we as individuals and as a university community are growing toward single-heartedness in loving God and other people. We used the measuing sticks of faith, excellence, leadership and service as a kind of shorthand for the deeper mission of Marquette, and we reflected especially on the ethical dimensions the Mission Week theme.

Marquette's Mission

Dedicated to serving God by serving our students, faculty, and staff, Marquette University contributes to the advancement of knowledge by searching for truth, discovering and sharing knowledge, fostering personal and professional excellence, promoting a life of faith, and developing service leadership in others.

At Marquette, we believe the pursuit of excellence is a lifelong endeavor and education needs to encompass the whole person, through formation of the mind and heart. We are committed to the unfettered pursuit of truth under the mutually illuminating powers of human intelligence and Christian faith. All members of the Marquette community, from every faith tradition, give concrete expression to these beliefs by giving of themselves in service to those in need.
