"The Catholic University of America is a community of scholars, both
faculty and students, set apart to discover, preserve and impart truth
in all its forms."
Here at CUA we are proud of our emphasis on a faith-based education and our mission as the national university of the Catholic Church.
A Catholic Education
The university seeks the advancement of knowledge with this context - exposing students to the arts and humanities, language and literature, and the natural and social sciences. The Catholic University of America welcomes students of all faiths, ethnicities and backgrounds and recognizes that diversity is essential to a modern experience in higher education. At the Catholic University of America there is a spiritual dimension to campus life that can enhance and enrich your university experience.

It is our fundamental belief that the life of the intellect is not diminished but, rather, intensified by the light of faith. They are two distinct, yet related, avenues to the discovery of one truth.
Attending college is not just about the pursuit of academic knowledge; it's about growing as a person and living in a community of your peers.
