The ASSOCIATION OF CATHOLIC COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES, founded in 1899, serves as the collective voice of U.S. Catholic higher education. Through programs and services, the association strengthens and promotes the Catholic identity and mission of its member institutions so that all associated with Catholic higher education can contribute to the greater good of the world and the Church.
Through research, publications, conferences, consultations, special programs, and standing relationships with other agencies, ACCU encourages and facilitates sharing of ideas and cooperative efforts among its member institutions.
Contact with the Catholic hierarchy is maintained principally through the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Congregation for Catholic Education of the Holy See.
The association maintains national, international, and ecumenical relations with other higher education institutions.
