CUAC Web Logo

  • What is at the core of Anglican colleges and universities and what makes them distinctive?  The CUAC board started its Strategic Planning by crafting a declaration of the values that distinguish Anglican higher education.  It was presented to the members at the Chennai Triennial in January 2017 and is now before members and regional chapters for reflection and implantation.  In May they were adopted by the General Synod of the Episcopal Church in the Philippines, for example, as a model for all their church colleges and schools.
