Collegium thrives with participants from all religious denominations (or no spiritual leanings). The focus is on the multiple traditions that comprise "the Catholic imagination." Catholic institutions thrive when they are able to share with and learn from people of all faiths and spiritual backgrounds.
Unless specifically arranged with the Collegium Director, colloquy participants are from member schools. The colloquy is designed primarily for faculty members, but administrators and staff members who share significant responsibility for students or faculty formation are welcome to participate as well. Participants should be able to commit to being present for the full colloquy week.
Participants are nominated by a designated liaison at each member institution, no later than March 15 each year. Institutions vary in how these nominations are made, but the liaison should communicate with the nominee(s) to launch the registration process. Applicants and liaisons are welcome to contact us at any time throughout the nomination and registration process with questions that arise. Faculty nominees must complete the online registration no later than March 15. Full registrations include:
- the completed on-line registration form [will receive password to access registration form with welcome letter]
- a curriculum vitae
- an informal personal essay, up to 750 words, in which you discuss your reasons for attending Collegium. Include significant hopes and/or questions about the relationship between your academic career and spiritual life. The primary purpose of the essay is to give us a sense of what issues are most important to participants.
