Catholic Social Teaching (CST) is the tradition of thought in which the Church seeks to advance justice in the world by engaging social, cultural, political and economic realities in our day. Thus, CST is both fitting and essential to the mission of Catholic higher education, particularly in the education and formation of its students.

To that end, CST can be a powerful tool in preparing students for the ethical and moral dimensions of professional practice and good citizenship. Many Catholic institutes of higher education strive to incorporate CST across the curriculum. While this can be a challenging responsibility, it can be done in a manner consistent with the educational and accreditation standards of each academic discipline.

The Association of Catholic Colleges and University (ACCU) and the Institute for Policy Research & Catholic Studies (IPR) invite faculty from all disciplines to share learning modules on how to integrate Catholic Social Teaching in their classrooms.
