New Presidents Institute

Catholic Mission Institute for New Presidents


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.

—Past Institute Participants


College and university presidents bear myriad responsibilities: fund raising, technology planning, government relations, and much more. At a Catholic institution, the president must also personify, articulate, and celebrate the Catholic identity of the campus – and weave it through every decision and interaction.

Join the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities Catholic Mission Institute for New Presidents and learn how to navigate these duties related to the faith-based identity of your university. The Institute is open to all presidents in the first two years of their presidency at a Catholic college or university. Throughout the Institute, past and current presidents will be available to serve as mentors to participants.
