Community Relations

The AJCU Community Relations Network consists of community relations and neighborhood-focused engagement professionals at all 27 Jesuit colleges and universities in the United States. This group discusses topics and curates presentations that support the development of healthy campus-community environments. The Network hosts an annual in-person conference and AJCU campus visit, which was held most recently at Regis University in 2023. Throughout the year, the Network meets monthly via Zoom and maintains an active dialogue about campus planning and anchor mission initiatives on Jesuit campuses through an AJCU listserv.
