Catholic Mission Institute for New Presidents
January 28–30, 2016
Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington, DC
Each year, more than a dozen ACCU institutions welcome new presidents. Typically, some have previously been presidents of another institution, but most are entering their first presidency. As many as one-third of our new presidents come from non-ACCU institutions and may have little preparation for enhancing their understanding of the Catholic dimensions of their new leadership role. As a result, ACCU designed this valuable program, to which all ACCU member presidents in their first or second year of a new presidency are invited. The three-day program includes optional one-on-one consultation sessions with experienced presidents and opportunities for spouses of presidents to gather.
Here's what past participants had to say:
- “Relevant. Refreshing. Engaging. These words all describe the ACCU Institute for New Presidents. I had attended several similar workshops from other associations, but none compared to the ACCU program. It is a must for all new presidents of Catholic colleges and universities, both large and small.”
- “Incredibly important to my education as a new president – I highly recommend it for future new presidents.”
- “Practical collegiality so very welcome; sense of mission and sacredness of this work reinforced; panelists uniformly prepared, thoughtful, pointed, and often poignant.”
- “Far more helpful to me than previous ‘new president’ programs.”

for your support of the 2015 ACCU Catholic Mission Institute for New Presidents! We look forward to working with new and established presidents in the months ahead.
