Care for the Person

We take the Jesuit educational principle, Care for the Person (cura personalis), seriously at Marquette University Law School. In a special way, this value is expressed through our desire to listen to our students and to help them sort through the changes and challenges they might experience while attending law school.

We are cognizant that a student brings so much more to law school than a sharp mind and a keen intellect. Our concern is for the whole person, and encounters with students often present an opportunity to discuss emotional, physical, or spiritual matters as well as academic issues. We encourage all Marquette law students to take advantage of any and all of the following resources as they work to pursue their professional and personal goals:

  • The Office of Student Affairs in suite 238 is open Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All law students are welcome to stop by or make an appointment with a Student Affairs team member to receive individual assistance.
  • The Marquette University Counseling Center provides free, confidential virtual counseling services and referrals to full-time students during the school year. For more information or to make an appointment, please visit the Counseling Center's website.
  • Campus Ministry has chaplains and spiritual leaders available to provide pastoral care. To learn more about Campus Ministry's services, please click here.
  • The Eckstein Hall Fitness Center includes individual exercise equipment, shower rooms, a workout room as well as weekly yoga classes during the fall and spring semesters. Our students also enjoy use of the University's recreation centers for swimming, tennis, basketball, indoor running tracks, etc. The Eckstein Hall Fitness Center, however, is available for use only by members of the Law School community.
  • The St. Edmund Campion Chapel on Eckstein Hall's fourth floor is a quiet spot for private reflection and the location of future monthly Masses, celebrated by Father Greg O'Meara, S.J., associate professor of law and rector of the Marquette University Jesuit Community.
  • The Backpack Program is a free and confidential service that provides groceries to any Marquette student who is having difficulty accessing affordable, nutritious food and other essential household items. 
  • The Tory Hill Café offers a variety of healthy -- including vegetarian and gluten-free -- options for breakfast and lunch during the fall and spring semesters.

The student affairs professionals listed below stand ready to advise students on a wide-range of non-academic issues and welcome students to share both the setbacks and the triumphs that are all part of the law school experience:
