Awards & Recognition

Peacemaking student is recipient of AMUW Ignatian Leadership Award

We congratulate Emily Landes (Arts & Sciences ’15) for being selected as the recipient of the Association of Marquette University Women (AMUW) 2015 Ignatian Leadership Award. This award honors a graduating senior woman who excels academically, demonstrates leadership skills, and volunteeres her services to the Marquette and Milwaukee (or her hometown) communities. The recipient also strives to live out the Ignatian ideals through her work, volunteer efforts and commitments to family, classmates, and peers.

Emily's involvement with the Center for Peacemaking has been extensive: she received the M&J Fellowship for Peace, she served as the president of the Peacemakers student organization, and she worked in our office and as a nonviolence educator in the Peace Works program.

Event Recap

Peacemaker in Residence shares message of following conscience 

Col. (Ret.) Ann Wright spent several days on campus visiting classes and engaging students. In each of her presentations she challenged students to consider how their career choices contribute to the common good. The highlight of the week was a panel discussion between Wright, Rev. Thomas Hughson, S.J., and Dr. Terrence Rynne, facilitated by Dr. Stephanie Russell that explored the topics of peacemaking, pacifism, and just war.
 
Her visit was covered in the Marquette Tribune and she was featured on Wisconsin Public Radio's "The Kathleen Dunn Show."
