2018 ASACCU Conference

Visioning Contemporary Catholic Higher Education:
Preparing Changemakers to Confront Today's Urgent Challenges

July 17-20, 2018
San Diego, CA

This year’s conference, “Visioning Contemporary Catholic Higher Education: Preparing Changemakers to Confront Today’s Urgent Challenges,” is inspired by USD’s Envisioning 2024 strategic plan which aligns our recent progress and our current strengths with new strategic goals that will shape the future both locally and globally. At the conference, we hope to explore ways Catholic institutions can utilize the incredible resources available to us, including recent research and innovations throughout higher education, explorations into rich cultural and social traditions, and our passion for the work we are all called to do to address the world’s most urgent challenges head on.

As an Ashoka U Changemaker Campus, we also hope to introduce the “Changemaker Campus” concept and our desire to bring social innovation and changemaking to every person in our community. At USD, we are all changemakers and we hope to share that calling with every conference participant, as well.

We hope you will join us for what promises to be an unforgettable conference experience at USD, recently named number one on Princeton Review’s Most Beautiful Campus list in the nation. Participants will have the opportunity to join in community and learn with student affairs practitioners from across the United States, as well as enjoy some of what “America’s Finest City” has to offer.
