Dear Chief Academic Officers of the AJCU,

We are all disappointed to not be meeting in person this spring, but we are looking forward to our "virtual" meeting at the end of the month.

Please follow this link to the Response Form, where you can indicate which date works better for you and to suggest topics for the "lightning round" session.

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome! Loyola University Chicago is proud to host the Chief Academic Officers of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities, March 28th, 2020. The city of Chicago in the spring promises to be a beautiful backdrop for our gathering, one which offers us the unique opportunity to share with peers at other Jesuit schools the leadership, management, and organizational issues in academic affairs that confront us all. Join me and your AJCU colleagues at Loyola University Chicago for a day of renewal, and for an opportunity to engage in the collaborative exchange of ideas and best practices.
