As the national university of the Catholic Church in the United States, The Catholic University of America has a distinct mission that sets us apart from other Catholic and American institutions of higher learning: to discover and impart the truth through excellence in teaching and research, in service to the Church, the nation, and the world. The University's Strategic Plan, which outlines specific goals and objectives we have committed to in order to build upon our tradition of excellence and chart our course for the future, was updated on Nov. 22, 2016. It is available as a PDF document for reading online or download.
