Official website for the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities (AJCU), a national organization based in Washington, D.C. whose mission is to serve its member institutions, the 28 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States, through programs and resources that support their Jesuit mission and identity. Founded in 1970, it was preceded by the Commission on Colleges and Universities of the Jesuit Educational Association (JEA), an organization for both Jesuit secondary and postsecondary education begun in 1936.
Today the 35+ Conferences sponsored by the AJCU are affinity groups within the AJCU Network that provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, information and best practices. The AJCU also includes the Jesuit Distance Education Network (JesuitNET), a collaborative effort to develop high quality online education within the perspective of Ignatian pedagogy. To help faculty incorporate Ignatian pedagogy into their online courses, the Competency Assessment in Distributed Education (CADE) model was developed. Today, the JesuitNET online catalogue hosts hundreds of courses that include courses from Latin American sister institutions. -- from website
