ABOUT THE ACCU

The Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities is a voluntary association founded in 1899 by fifty-three delegates from Catholic colleges throughout the United States.  Since then the Association has grown fourfold to represent more than ninety percent of accredited Catholic institutions of higher learning in the United States, plus approximately two dozen international universities. The president/rector of each institution serves as its voting member.

ACCU’s principal purposes are to help member institutions strengthen their stated Catholic mission and to foster collaboration among Catholic colleges and universities.
