Marquette Signs St. Francis Pledge

Marquette University’s president Michael Lovell signed the St. Francis Pledge on Earth Day. The St. Francis Pledge is a promise and commitment promoted by the Catholic Climate Covenant. Individuals, families, groups, and institutions can take the pledge, which includes the undertaking of prayer, learning, assessment, action, and advocacy. Marquette instituted the Pledge after three years of work, and now students, faculty, and staff plan to continue working in order to fulfill their commitment. One major project includes the creation of a sustainability office, which will develop a consciousness of sustainability throughout the entire university, rather than isolating those efforts within the facilities offices.
