Guided by our mission,
vision and values.

Grounded by our Guiding Values, Beyond Boundaries sets in motion a clear strategy for Marquette’s future — where we want to be, how we will get there and what we can do to go further, to Be The Difference for our students.

Integrated and college centric, Beyond Boundaries is inextricably tied to the university’s mission and vision — it is informed by who we are, and it will inform everything we do to move forward as a transformational university that delivers a transformational education.

Beyond Barriers

Big ideas and breakthroughs
