History and Mission

For over 100 years, colleges and universities have employed student services professionals to address the non-academic needs of their students. Administrators try to balance a concern for the needs of students with their responsibility to advance the educational mission of the institution. However, in their day to day interactions and decisions, the individual student remains a top priority.

At Marquette University, the Jesuit mission provides a values-centered context for learning, emphasizing Jesuit educational principles, such as holistic development, care for the person (cura personalis), justice, and service to the community. While these values are not taught in any formal way, they do provide ideals to which faculty, staff, and students may aspire.

In addition to the Jesuit mission, the Law School has a special relationship and duty to the legal community. As a result, law students learn certain ethical and professional standards that have been established by the legal profession.
