Faculty and Staff Service & Civic Engagement
Faculty members in the College of Education aspire to be outstanding teachers who make significant scholarly contributions to their fields of study. Equally important, however, faculty and staff both volunteer their time to make important societal and professional contributions that demonstrate leadership expressed in service to others.
Our faculty and staff participate in a broad array of activities in partnership with our many shareholders in urban, suburban and rural schools and communities, human service and other types of agencies, and professional organizations. Service includes membership on boards, executive and advisory committees, task forces, and steering groups as well as numerous leadership and consulting roles.
We invite you to take note below of the many ways our faculty and staff demonstrate professional and civic engagement. This compendium of service illuminates our profound commitment to social justice and serves to honor Marquette’s tradition as a Catholic, Jesuit university.
