Mission Integration
The Voice of Student Affairs Professionals in Catholic Higher Education
The Association for Student Affairs at Catholic Colleges and Universities

Mission Integration Award

As the "voice for student affairs professionals in catholic higher education", the intent of this annual project is to highlight model practice programs in various student life areas which intentionally articulate Catholic identity as an integral part of a student life program.  Through the mutual sharing of ideas and their practical applications, ASACCU hopes to foster dialogue to deepen our member's understanding of the interplay between Catholic identity and the ever changing complexity of contemporary circumstances and student life issues on our campuses.

Areas of emphasis are Residence Life, Student Activities, and Dean of Students.  Programs are selected for their originality, positive impact on student learning, quality assessment, demonstration of at least one of ASACCU's Principles of Good Practice; and a firm integration of Catholic identity and institutional mission.  Winners are recognized at the annual ASACCU conference.
