July 19 – 21, 2010
Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI

Registration is now open!

Marquette is also hosting a AJCU Communication Conference this summer!


The conference offers the 850+ faculty who teach media and communications at Catholic universities an opportunity to discuss their work and that of their students in light of the tradition, mission, and identity of their institutions.

To aid discussion, each day has a different focus:

  • The opening day combines reflection on the uniqueness and charisms which shape the identity of the institutions with presentations on how communication programs extend this identity into the community – both local and global – through service learning and other programs.
  • The second day centers on ethics as a common base and the teaching strategies for ethics.
  • The third day looks to the future: where can we go from here?
Each day begins with a major keynote speaker and respondents, then shifts into panels or paper sessions so participants can engage in discussion and inform others of the work on their campuses.

Monday evening will be free so that participants can enjoy an evening on Milwaukee.

Conference Masses will be celebrated Monday and Tuesday at 5 pm, and at the close of the conference Wednesday noon. The celebrants include Abp. Claudio Celli, president of the Pontifical Council for Social Communication and Most Rev. Jerome Listecki of Milwaukee.

Papers will be refereed by faculty panels; accepted papers will be published in a monograph and on CD.
