Vision and Voice for Catholic Higher Education      Learn More




THANK YOU to everyone who made the 2017 ACCU Annual Meeting such an outstanding success!

2017 Annual Meeting

In the long tradition of the Catholic Church, diversity embodies inclusion—a concept tied directly to the glory of God. For this reason, a “radical hospitality” greets all who enter Catholic colleges and universities, an incarnation of the welcoming spirit of Christ. Working from a broad understanding of diversity enables Catholic higher education to take a transformational approach to educating mind, heart, and body. ACCU is proud that its 2017 Annual Meeting provided practical advice for advancing a deeper understanding of diversity and inclusion on campus. 

  • View photos from the meeting on our Flickr page.
  • Read "Ten Ways Your Campus Can Be More Inclusive" for suggestions on building a true sense of oneness on your campus, with examples from Catholic institutions across the country. 
  • Watch the tribute videos to 2017 award recipients Rev. Michael J. Sheeran, SJ, Sr. Margaret Carney, OSF, S.T.D., and Thomas M. Landy, Ph.D.
