Marquette University Vision Statement
Marquette University aspires to be, and to be recognized, among the most innovative and accomplished Catholic and Jesuit universities in the world, promoting the greater glory of God and the well-being of humankind.
We must reach beyond traditional academic boundaries and embrace new and collaborative methods of teaching, learning, research and service in an inclusive environment that supports all of our members in reaching their fullest potential.
Marquette graduates will be problem-solvers and agents for change in a complex world, so in the spirit of St. Ignatius and Jacques Marquette they are ready in every way “to go and set the world on fire.”
About strategic planning
The Marquette community has committed to creating a comprehensive, university-wide strategic plan to submit to the University Board of Trustees in May 2013. When completed, the strategic plan will provide a blueprint to guide the university's priorities and decision-making for the next five to seven years. This strategic planning website is established as a vehicle for the campus community to learn about the strategic planning process and provide feedback.
"For this plan to be the visionary document we hope it to be, it has to reflect our wisdom, dreams and desires."
President Scott R. Pilarz, S.J.
