Event Description:
Sponsored by Office(s) of Intercultural Engagement,
Community Service & Burke Scholars

This one-day Saturday conference will help you explore your role in affecting social change, especially in the context of a Jesuit institution. The conference expands upon last year’s Social Justice in Action Conference to be relevant for a wide variety of social justice issues.

What topics will be covered? The conference will provide both entry-level discussions around allyship, privilege, volunteerism and social justice issues as well as more advanced skill-building for students who already identify as advocates and activists (for example, conflict management, effective marketing, storytelling, self-care). We also intend to include historical perspectives on social movements in Milwaukee, space for reflection, and an expression project.

Who should attend? Everyone! If you have been involved in service, if you care about inequality, if you want Marquette to be an inclusive community, if you are an experienced activist, or if you just want to learn more --- Join us! Students of all levels are welcome.

What does the conference cost? The conference is free and includes breakfast, lunch, and afternoon coffeee hour.

Do I need to register? Yes, at
