Mission Week 2003 Update
Each year in February the Marquette community pauses in a special way to
recall our common mission and the values that unify and inspire us. As a
Catholic, Jesuit university we are committed to creating an inclusive
environment that promotes excellence in all areas, encourages a life of
faith, cultivates leadership and results in service to others. Mission Week
helps us to remember our larger purpose and allows us to reflect on the
goals that guide us throughout the year. Join others at Marquette in
celebrating Mission Week 2003 from Sunday, Feb. 9, through Sunday, Feb.
16, by participating in events and taking time to discuss what matters most
about our work together.
