Catholic Colleges and Universities

 The Catholic Colleges and Universities Community of Practice offers networking and support for college union professionals working at Catholic colleges and universities. These institutions represent unique opportunities and challenges to ensure our unions and our programs are aligned with the missions and values of our individual institutions. In doing so, we also appreciate the importance of respecting diverse perspectives offered by our students, faculty, and staff from varied cultural and religious traditions. As student affairs professionals, we value holistic education and we acknowledge the need for ongoing dialogue around faith and culture and the development of student leaders for a just and human world.

The commons issues of interest to members of this community of practice include:

  • How to best represent the Catholic identity of our colleges/universities through our unions, in policy and practice as well as visual representation
  • Student organization recognition for groups that may fall outside of institutional mission
  • Student organization event registration for events that may fall outside of institutional mission
