The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking empowers the university and the wider community to explore together the necessary skills to become informed, spiritually-centered, nonviolent peacemakers. Rooted in the Ignatian charism, the center fosters an awakening to the holistic relationship of scholarship, spirituality, nonviolent living, and the active struggle for peace and justice.
Join us for a panel discussion with professionals from local companies and organizations who make a difference through their careers. Following the panel we will have a networking coffee hour.

Re-live the life and legacy of one of America’s greatest minds through this dramatic reading theater.
Best known for his works Walden and Civil Disobedience, Henry David Thoreau’s writings and thought have influenced global figures such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Mahatma Gandhi, and Leo Tolstoy.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (who makes a special appearance) said, “No truer American existed than Henry David Thoreau.” Thoreau continues to be a symbol of timeless virtues that preserve the planet and its species.
