Promising Practices in Mission & Identity

There are many ways that Catholic colleges and universities express, enhance, and convey their Catholic identity — efforts that touch the classroom, the residence halls, the local community, and the world. Some efforts are aimed at engaging and enriching students, faculty, and administrators; others are directed at trustees or other audiences.

This searchable inventory of promising practices in Catholic higher education mission and identity includes programs, events, curricular designs, department structures, publications, and other practices that have successfully fostered a greater sense of the institution's Catholic mission and identity. These promising practices, gathered from across ACCU member institutions, can serve as examples for leaders in Catholic higher education as they work to strengthen Catholic mission and identity. The descriptions are designed to give a general overview of how the initiative functions, as well as offering ideas on funding and administration, in an effort to encourage replication at other institutions. Where possible, links are provided for further information.

If your college or university would like to update an existing record or add a new initiative, please contact ACCU.

We encourage you to search the directory for inspiration.
