Thomas M. Landy, Ph.D., director and founder of Collegium, received the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities (ACCU) Presidents’ Distinguished Service Award for personal service of exceptional quality to Catholic higher education. The award was given at the opening of the ACCU's Annual Conference, January 28, 2017 in Washington, D.C.
“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.
Over the years, our fellows continue to offer powerful testimony for the Collegium experience. Read and hear what some of them have said.
