Compass Points

Compass Points is the official newsletter of the Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion. It is generally published on-line two or three times per year in a computer printable PDF format. Each edition is sent to all member institutions and also to any persons or institutions who wish to receive copies of the publication.

The newsletter publishes news from all member institutions and also news of member churches around the Anglican Communion which would be of interest to members. (Send news releases to [email protected])

Occasional Papers

A joint publication of Whitelands College, University of Roehampton, London, UK, and CUAC (Colleges and Universities of the Anglican Communion)

Cuac Occasional Papers




From 1999 to 2005, CUAC published a referred journal entitled 'Prologue'. It focused on the issues, trends, opportunities, and challenges of international Anglican higher education. With contributors and readers on five continents, Prologue offered diverse perspectives on the unique mission of church-related colleges and universities throughout the world. Because of the cost of publication, the CUAC Board of Trustees suspended publication in 2008. It was decided that CUAC's Newsletter/Magazine Compass Points would henceforth publish both news and formal papers to the CUAC community. The first integrated edition was published in Volume 10:1 of Compass Points.

Reprints of all issues of Prologue are available from CUAC for a nominal fee plus international postage.
