CCE's National Presence in Catholic Education

By Ben Swick

The University of Dayton’s very own Center for Catholic Education was recognized in the fall edition of Momentum magazine for their increasing presence in Catholic education nationwide. Momentum is a magazine for the National Catholic Educational Association (NCEA). The director of UD’s Center for Catholic Education, Susan Ferguson, was quoted in this article speaking about the importance of strong relationships between Catholic higher education and Catholic schools. Susan recently received the “Learn. Lead. Proclaim. Award” from NCEA for her work at the Center. Among the many programs at the CCE, Lalanne, ECHO, and the Excellence Initiative were specifically mentioned for “fortify[ing] bonds between the university and local Catholic schools.” The article details the nature of these programs as they carry out the mission and identity of the CCE, which is to “serve and lead the local, national and global Catholic school community.”

The University of Dayton was one of three schools mentioned in this article, the other two being St. Norbert College in Wisconsin, and Loyola Marymount University in LA. All three schools are making progress towards strengthening Catholic Education across the nation. These programs help under-resourced Catholic schools by sharing their time, talent, and treasure for the greater good of education. We are seeing a shift for the better through the efforts by these higher level institutions, with the goal of continuous growth of Catholic education.
