The Annual Colloquy

Participants in the 2009 Colloquy at Saint John's University, Minnesota

Collegium is known for the annual summer colloquies it sponsors for faculty from its 65 member institutions in the United States and Canada. The colloquies provide a collegial environment in which participants from diverse backgrounds, faiths, and disciplines discuss the sources and implications of an academic vocation, and explore how that vocation can be enriched and realized in a Catholic college or university setting. Collegium colloquies invite scholars to explore some of the most compelling aspects of the Catholic intellectual tradition and to think about how their work serves their students, the academy and the world.

The location of the Colloquy alternates among three host sites: College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass., Saint John's University in Collegeville, Minn. and the University of Portland in Portland, Ore.
