College and university presidents bear myriad responsibilities: fund raising, technology planning, government relations, and much more. At a Catholic institution, the president must also personify, articulate, and celebrate the Catholic identity and university mission of the campus — and weave it through every decision and interaction.
Join the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities Catholic Mission Institute for New Presidents and learn how to navigate these duties related to the faith-based identity of your university. The Institute is open to all presidents in the first two years of their presidency at a Catholic college or university, as well as interim presidents. Throughout the Institute, past and current presidents will be available to serve as mentors to participants.
The new, redesigned Institute is an 8-month program that includes:
Three one-hour webinars during the fall semester (August, October, and December 2017). New registrants will receive access to on-demand webinar recordings!
A two-day in-person seminar, taking place immediately before the 2018 Annual Meeting in Washington, DC (begins at 2:30 pm on Friday, February 2 and closes on Saturday, February 3, at 3:30 pm)
Two one-hour webinars during the spring semester (February-March 2018)
