Faith-Based Student Groups

Student groups that are faith-based have a particular commitment to the mission of CUA and the Catholic Church. The Office of Campus Ministry advises faith-based student groups as they seek to carry out their important work on behalf of the Gospel.  We welcome new groups with this mission and invite students to speak with us about their interests.
