Marquette is participating in the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities Mission Priority Examen process during the 2019-20 academic year. The Mission Priority Examen provides space and structure for each Jesuit college and university to undertake serious discussions about how they understand their school’s authentic mission, establish goals for the future, and set forth new or renewed means of realizing those goals in the years to come.
At this stage, the steering committee is securing feedback from campus on areas of strength and improvement related to living our Catholic, Jesuit mission. All members of the Marquette community are invited to take this short online survey to help inform the process. The Steering Committee is visiting many departments, colleges and units on campus to share information about the Mission Priority Examen process and solicit input.
After gathering input from campus, the next steps is for the steering committee to develop a draft report focused on the following characteristics:
- Campus Culture
- Service to Local Church
- Jesuit Presence
- Diversity and Inclusion
- International Education
Once the report is drafted, a peer review site will visit campus in January 2020 to meet with campus stakeholders. The report is expected to be finalized in April 2020 and sent to AJCU leadership.
