The 2014 Association for Student Affairs at Catholic Colleges and Universities (ASACCU) National Conference will be held on the St. Mary’s University campus. This event takes place July 29 through August 1.

Our hopes are that this conference will:

·   Increase participants’ understanding of mission integration across the campus
·   Encourage conversation about putting mission into practice
·   Engage in dialogue about identifying and measuring student outcomes to determine the future direction of student development and Catholic Higher Education
