History

Since 2003, the Association of Marianist Universities has worked to sustain the Marianist educational tradition on our campuses – but our members have been collaborative partners much longer than that. Dedicated faculty and staff members at Chaminade University, St. Mary’s University and the University of Dayton have worked together for more than 20 years, both formally and informally, to discuss each university’s concerns and interests in a spirit of mutual respect and support. Each university remains committed to partnering with its sister institutions, and the AMU provides a focused strategy and formalized structure in which to achieve our cooperative initiatives.

 

Vision

The Association of Marianist Universities unites the diverse gifts of each of the campuses into a dynamic network that enables the Marianist universities to be leaders in American higher education.  AMU assists the universities in using and adapting the Catholic and Marianist traditions of education as vital resources that support excellence and validate distinctiveness.

 

Mission

The mission of the Association of Marianist Universities is to support, promote and advance Marianist higher education.  AMU does this by facilitating an environment to sustain cooperation and the exchange of experience and information among the members.  AMU represents Marianist higher education at the national and international levels and contributes to the formation of leaders in the Catholic and Marianist educational traditions in their service to the Church and world.
