The Offices of Mission and Ministry and the Provost invite all employees hired since August 19, 2013, to a day long seminar where they will learn more about the history and importance of Jesuit Higher Education and Marquette University. Faculty and Staff will gain a clearer understanding of the Catholic and Jesuit tradition that characterizes and animates Marquette University. We at Marquette cherish this tradition and look forward to sharing it with you as you continue your service at the university.
