The primary focus of the Marquette University Office of Intercultural Engagement is to enhance the overall quality of the Marquette experience of underrepresented and diverse students by supporting, facilitating, and promoting academic, social, cultural, and personal success.

National Resources

When students attend college, they gain exposure to a slew of ideas and research efforts that expand their perceptions, global awareness and ability to work with others. Colleges serve as cultural hubs in our society, and campus administrators recognize the strong need for diverse student populations. Inclusive campuses also honor the histories of various civil rights movements in the U.S.; academic access can serve to empower and advance minority groups.
