Marquette University Social Innovation Initiative
Marquette’s Catholic, Jesuit identity calls members of the campus community to Be the Difference, preparing men and women for others. These fundamental characteristics and traits align nicely with social innovation and social entrepreneurship; attacking root causes of social problems with sustainable models that increase human capability.
“Ultimately, we must understand the need to be agents of change.” - Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
Goals for the initiative include equipping champions on- and off-campus, building curricular and co-curricular practices, and serving as a regional convener of like-minded agents of positive social change.
