Statements and Resources for Students

This section includes example statements and campus resources related to specific areas. These typically focus on the "cura personalis" dimensions of our students. Academic-focused policies and statements can be found in the Policies and Academic Support sections. This list is by no means exhaustive.

"Cura Personalis" Statement

This sample Cura Personalis statement was drafted by Dr. Melissa Shew (College of Arts & Science, Philosophy, summer 2020). 

This statement explains what cura personalis is, what it means to the mission of Marquette, and links to resources for students that care for their whole person.
