ABOUT MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY
Marquette is a private, Catholic, Jesuit university in the heart of downtown Milwaukee. There are over 11,000 undergraduate, graduate and professional students. Marquette is the largest private institution of higher learning in Wisconsin and is nationally known for it’s commitment to service work, social justice and the ideals of Jesuit education.
Milwaukee has both the cultural resources of a big city and the friendly feel of a small town. A short walk from campus through the downtown business district will get you to the Great Lake Michigan. There are vibrant and fun neighborhoods close to campus that staff tend to settle in. Milwaukee is equidistant between Chicago and Madison and is not far from the wilds of the northern Wisconsin woods.
The Counseling Center has been focusing on social justice for the past several years and is an integral part of many university diversity initiatives. It is dedicated to inclusion and equity and staff strives to continue to learn about oppression and connect with underrepresented groups on campus.
