What you will learn

Through this comprehensive program, participants will be able to:

  • Develop a vision for their organization that reflects a faith-based mission
  • Understand how the rich heritage of Catholic social teaching supports their work today
  • Incorporate the principle of faith-based mission as their organization’s strategic driver

The program examines how faith-based mission imprints decisionmaking, leadership, and organizational practices. With distinguished and committed faculty, the program will provide frameworks and practical insights through instruction, discussion, reflection and action learning. The program design is grounded on how the Catholic mission animates, energizes and guides leadership and organization systems for both immediate and long-term performance.
Faculty and Staff

Instruction is provided by Notre Dame faculty in business and theology, as well as other national leaders.


For maximum effect, this program is designed for senior leaders of Catholic Charities organizations. This program enrolls only teams from Catholic Charities agencies. Each team of no less than three and no more than five members must include a board member and the chief officer.

Enrollment and Program Costs

This program is offered exclusively for the leaders and board members of Catholic Charities. All costs for the program other than travel and lodging expenses are underwritten by the University of Notre Dame, and instruction is provided pro-bono by faculty.

We ask that when participants apply, they commit to full attendance at and engagement in all parts of the program. For this reason, a noncancellation, refundable deposit of $1,000 is required for each agency at the time of enrolling. Agencies attending the program will receive a full refund of the deposit; those agencies that cancel will forfeit their deposit.

Participants will be responsible for their own travel and lodging at the Morris Inn on the Notre Dame campus.
