Mission Leadership Institute

Villanova University, outside Philadelphia


Not just for mission officers!

Registration will open in April. For further information, contact Nadine Jalandoni.


Join this intensive program at the newly renovated Inn at Villanova University to explore the complex and multi-layered roles of mission leaders in Catholic higher education.

Formerly known as the Mission Officer Institute, the ACCU Mission Leadership Institute is an intensive 4-day summer program facilitated by experienced mission officers and other experts in Catholic higher education. The Mission Leadership Institute features:

  • engaging presentations by inspiring speakers
  • workshops and activities, including the opportunity to develop an "Action Project" to take back to campus
  • panels of experts eager to assist and mentor participants 
  • opportunities for prayer and worship




The Mission Leadership Institute is designed to help new, emerging, and future mission leaders integrate and sustain mission on their campus. The program is for anyone who has responsibilities for advancing, promoting, and integrating Catholic mission on campus. This includes mission officers, student development personnel, department chairs, diversity officers, and deans and provosts.  The Institute is also an excellent opportunity for mid-career and senior mission leaders to gain new perspectives, learn new skills, and refresh their spirit.
