REGISTER NOW: ACCU is sponsoring a series of regional meetings for Campus Ministry Directors on member campuses in 2015-16. Meet colleagues, share best practices, and discuss the issues that matter -- all without being away from campus for more than one day. Sessions taking place in the mid-Atlantic, West, Great Lakes area, South, and more... all open for registration now!

A voluntary association, ACCU was founded in 1899 by 53 delegates from Catholic colleges throughout the United States. Since then, the association has grown fourfold to represent more than 90 percent of accredited Catholic institutions of higher learning in the United States, plus approximately two dozen international universities. 

ACCU’s principal purposes are to help member institutions strengthen their stated Catholic mission and to foster collaboration among Catholic colleges and universities.
