Optional Convention Events
ACCU Wrap Around Meeting
The Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) is hosting a wrap around meeting titled, Catholic Higher Education: Campus Ministers and Mission Officers Strengthening Catholic Mission and Identity Together. It will be held Tuesday, January 8 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The cost is $85 and includes lunch and meeting materials.
Meeting Description
There are a variety of best practices demonstrating how campus ministers and mission officers may work together for the common good. We will explore that the different ways the campus minister and the mission officer carry out their duties can help both offices improve their work and presence on campus. This wrap around is not designed to improve the campus minister’s ability to minister to students (that is a primary focus of the CCMA National Convention), but rather to focus on how Catholic mission and identity is advanced on campus cooperatively by the mission officer and the campus minister at a Catholic university.

Morning: How does the campus minister help shape and find his/her place in the institutional Catholic culture of the campus?
Afternoon: Look at a variety of different models of Campus Minister/Mission Officer working relationships on Catholic campuses. Here are a few examples:
  • The Campus Minister is the Mission Officer
  • Little to no interaction exists between the Campus Minister and Mission Officer
  • The Campus Minister reports to the Mission Officer but has little programming similarity
  • The Campus Minister and the Mission Committee are separate but work in unision
