A project of the Bishops and Presidents Subcommittee of the USCCB Education Committee, in collaboration with the Association of Catholic Colleges & Universities.

In May 2001, The Application of Ex Corde Ecclesiae for the United States was promulgated, eleven years after the issuing of the document. Following the publishing of Guidelines Concerning the Mandatum in Catholic Universities in July 2001, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops' (USCCB) Committee on Education reconstituted the Bishops and Presidents Subcommittee “as a forum for an ongoing conversation on higher education issues.” The subcommittee aimed to find ways to strengthen cooperation between Catholic higher education and the bishops.

Promising Practices is one example of the subcommittee's excellent effort to advance best practices and collaborative ventures that have been taking place nationwide for years. The ideas are intended to promote even better future partnerships, enabling Catholic universities and dioceses to collaborate as they jointly proclaim the Good News.
