Shirley V. Hoogstra, J.D.

From The President

Thank you for your interest in supporting the CCCU! We invite you to join us as we work to promote and protect Christian higher education through our work in public advocacy, experiential education, and professional development. 2 Corinthians 9:7-8 gives us a foundation: "Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."

Below, you will find more information about our work on Capitol Hill, our efforts in leadership and professional development for staff and faculty, and our off-campus study programs. By investing in the CCCU, you invest in the future of our 180+ institutions, in the next generation of Christian thought leaders, and in building God’s kingdom throughout the world. Thank you!

Warmly,

Shirley

Monthly Prayer Focus

Our CCCU campuses across the globe have welcomed students back to school for the start of the 2021-2022 academic year. We ask for prayers for the health and safety of the campus communities as they continue to navigate Covid-19. As our students start classes this month, pray for God’s presence as they navigate a new routine and make new friends. Pray for God’s guidance and discernment over our campus leaders, faculty, and staff. Also, pray for the CCCU as we continue to prepare for the International Forum. We are so eager to see our CCCU campus communities in person and are working hard to enhance the experience for all.

The Case for Christian Higher Education

Annual Report

Advance Magazine

"You [Christian colleges] have what everybody else is desperate to have: a way of talking about and educating the human person in a way that integrates faith, emotion, and intellect. You have a recipe to nurture human beings who have a devoted heart, a courageous mind, and a purposeful soul. Almost no other set of institutions in American society has that, and everyone wants it."

-David Brooks
