ITCE Presentation at Notre Dame’s ACE Leadership Conference

ITCE will be attending and presenting at the 2023 ACE Leadership Conference at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana. Dr. Daryl Hagan, Interim Director of ITCE and Director of Accreditation, will give a presentation titled “Catholic Accreditation Creates and Sustains Catholic Culture,” which will discuss the options that your diocese or school has available to you for authentic Catholic accreditation. The session will highlight all options, including Lumen Accreditation, the first national Catholic program of accreditation.

The theme of this year’s ACE Leadership Conference is Fanning the Flame: Building Capacity for Sustainable Catholic Schools. The conference will provide an opportunity to learn from other Catholic school leaders from across the country, and gain insight into the challenges and issues you face in your work. We hope to see you there!

October 16 - 18, 2023
