ASEC Executive Director, Program Manager Attend IACHE Seminar

African Sisters Education Collaborative (ASEC)

Attendees of the IACHE seminar at Boston College in July of 2022.


A recent seminar at Boston College, IACHE, discusses current challenges facing Catholic Universities and how higher education can keep traditions alive on campus.

ASEC Executive Director Sr. Draru Mary Cecilia, LSMIG, and Program Manager Rosemary Shaver, M.Ed., attended a seminar for administrators and leaders of Catholic Universities recently. The seminar, held at Boston College, is hosted each July to discuss the current challenges to Catholic education. Discussions centered on what Catholicism looks like in the 21st Century and the things that can be done to keep traditions spirited and alive.

The four-day seminar was hosted by Michael James, Ph.D., director of the Institute for Administrators in Catholic Higher Education and a lecturer at Boston College. Some questions examined included: 

  • How do we animate a Catholic campus culture?
  • What defines the nature of the relationships and the appropriate practices between institutions of Catholic higher education and the Church?
  • How does Catholic social and moral teaching inform campus culture, policies and curriculum?

The training will help ASEC come up with ideas to keep students engaged with the collaborative at our four campus locations in the United States, as well as give us ideas to apply to workshops and seminars with ASEC Sisters.
