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

This month as the world responds to the challenges of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we join with brothers and sisters in Christ around the world in praying for health and wellbeing for our communities. Please join us in praying specifically for all of our campuses as they navigate complicated logistics, remote teaching, decisions on commencement, refunds, etc. Simultaneously, we here at the CCCU are moving all nine of our experiential education programs online. Please pray for our students and staff who are sad about this decision, even though we believe it is in everyone’s best interest. We are praying for you too!

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

Thank you for your interest in supporting the future of Christian higher education. We are working to advance faith and intellect for the common good, and we could not accomplish this without the generosity of our donors. If you have questions about any of the information here, or have interest in stock, IRA, or other non-cash gifts, please contact me. It is always a pleasure to be in touch with CCCU supporters!
