Universities offer a service of both preserving knowledge and contributing to knowledge through research and teaching. The ITCE anticipates serving Catholic education nationally by convening leaders, sponsoring research, and disseminating research findings.

We share research findings through scholarly publications, publication of conference proceedings, and an accessible white paper series.

White Papers

We convene bishops, educators, and researchers for an annual symposium to examine timely topics in Catholic education.

Sponsoring RESEARCH

We sponsor research on important topics in Catholic education.

"Clearly, then, Catholic identity is not dependent upon statistics. Neither can it be equated simply with orthodoxy of course content. It demands and inspires much more: namely that each and every aspect of your learning communities reverberates within the ecclesial life of faith. Only in faith can truth become incarnate and reason truly human, capable of directing the will along the path of freedom. In this way our institutions make a vital contribution to the mission of the Church and truly serve society."
