Centers & Institutes
Catholic colleges and universities are home to more than 1,000 innovative academic centers and institutes that organize and facilitate research, service, and scholarly exploration of topics important to Catholic higher education. This national database of centers and institutes across ACCU member institutions in the United States will help policy makers, researchers, journalists, funders, and others locate services and experts relevant to their interests. The list reveals the extraordinary scholarly contributions that Catholic colleges and universities make beyond the classroom.
Centers and institutes that do not have an academic component to their mission are not included. Rather, each is dedicated to a particular area of research, teaching, or service. Each has an intellectual component, each is connected to the academic priorities of the institution, and each has an intended reach beyond the campus.
