“How can I foster the mission of Catholic higher education within my own work and within my institution?” This is the question I brought home from my first experience with Collegium more than a decade ago. Although I went on to serve as a mentor and board member for Collegium for a number of years, this question continued to haunt me. After every Collegium experience, I felt uplifted and I renewed my commitment to more meaningfully integrate a Catholic perspective in my own work and to more openly push the conversation of mission integration at my home institution, the College of St. Benedict and St. John’s University.

In Becoming Beholders (Liturgical Press, 2014), Collegium's Karen E. Eifler and Thomas M. Landy bring together 20 faculty — from many religious backgrounds and diverse disciplines — to share pedagogical strategies for cultivating sacramental imagination and actions.
Five colleges and universities have been awarded Collegium grants, co-funded with the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities, for projects that advance Collegium's mission on those campuses and in broader forums. They are: Assumption College, Fontbonne University, Iona College, Loyola Marymount University and Rockhurst University.
