Faith, service, excellence through collaboration and innovation
The Center for Catholic Education at the University of Dayton is becoming a nationally recognized leader in research and programming for Catholic schools. While our core programs, Lalanne and the Empowering Children with Hope and Opportunity (ECHO), continue to be a focus of our work, we readily expand the scope of our service in response to the needs of Catholic education. We adhere steadfastly to our core values and beliefs while seeking to improve our connection with those who share our mission, including other areas of the University of Dayton, the Marianists, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and other universities.
Catholic Schools Week 2017
Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. This year's theme is “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” The Center for Catholic Education at the University of Dayton celebrated in a number of ways this year, including:
- Center for Catholic Education blog, twitter, and Facebook pages hosted greetings of celebration to all of our Catholic School colleagues.
- Center for Catholic Education’s staff were represented at the Catholic Schools Week Mass at St. Peter Church in Huber Heights.
- Teachers in our Lalanne program provided thank you's to our Catholic School partners.
- Lalanne teachers received e-cards and will be treated to dinner during community visits this semester.
