Each July, the Institute for Administrators in Catholic Higher Education hosts a four-day seminar providing a singular opportunity for administrators and leaders at Catholic colleges and universities around the globe to interact with some of the nation’s most outstanding scholars and practitioners as they address issues that Catholic higher education faces on a daily basis. A sample of issues the seminar strives to address are:
- What does it mean to be a Catholic college or university in the 21st century?
- How do we animate a Catholic campus culture?
- What role does the Catholic intellectual tradition play to inform curriculum and intellectual life?
- What defines the nature of the relationships and the appropriate practices between institutions of Catholic higher education and the Church?
- What are the implications of increased lay leadership in Catholic colleges and universities?
- How does Catholic social and moral teaching inform campus culture, policies and curriculum?
- How do we assess the mission?
The seminar is designed to serve administrative leaders such as presidents, provosts, vice-presidents, deans, mission officers, major program directors, and others in positions responsible for institutional mission and identity.
The Institute has attracted administrators from Catholic colleges and universities across the U.S., Australia, South America, Belize, Canada, Taiwan, Ghana, Guatemala, the Philippines, Haiti, and South Africa.
IACHE 2021 will take place July 19-22, 2021.
In order to facilitate substantive interaction and participation between the speakers and participants, registration is limited to approximately 40 participants. Acceptances are be made on a rolling basis and notifications sent as soon as we have received a completed application form and supporting documents (CV and a letter of support from your supervisor).
“One of the most important parts of the Institute was meeting people from other Catholic schools. There is a common bond and understanding of our Missions and…developing a network of people with common interests no matter what administrative position someone may be in was important…To have the opportunity to be away from my own campus and really focus on matters that often are put aside with the daily routine was critical to my personal development and the role I play in the development of the institution. And the lobster was great!”
