2020 ASACCU Conference

The summer conference for 2020 is hosted by Villanova University located in Villanova, PA. The conference begins on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 and concludes Friday, July 24, 2020. 

The 2020 Conference theme is "Gathering around the Table:  Nourishment for Restless Hearts." 

Located right outside of the beautiful and historic city of Philadelphia, Villanova is one of two Augustinian higher education institutions in the nation. Guided by our principals of Veritas, Unitas, and Caritas (truth, unity, and love), it is our strong Catholic Augustinian and community ideals that drive us to educate, develop, challenge, and serve our students. Villanova prides itself on our deeply-rooted tradition of service, social justice, and community engagement. We strive to develop and nurture the whole student in an environment that supports individual differences and insists that mutual love and respect should animate every aspect of what we do. These ideals are what helped shape the theme for our conference: “Gathering Around the Table: Nourishment for Restless Hearts.”

We look forward to welcoming you, our colleagues, from all faiths, traditions, and cultures, so we can all benefit from the many gifts and talents you contribute to the mission of student affairs.

We’re setting the table for what promises to be a fruitful and memorable conference experience and we hope to see you in 2020 at Villanova!

Tim Clydesdale is professor of sociology at The College of New Jersey. A first-generation college graduate, he earned his baccalaureate degree at Wheaton College (IL), and completed his PhD at Princeton University. After two years of teaching at Gordon College, Clydesdale joined The College of New Jersey, where he has also served as department chair, faculty senator, and faculty representative to the Board of Trustees. He has been invited to speak about his research at more than 50 colleges, universities, and scholarly associations across the U.S. His research on the post-high school transition culminated in The First Year Out: Understanding American Teens after High School (University of Chicago Press, 2007). His evaluation of an 88-campus, Lilly Endowment initiative, The Purposeful Graduate: Why Colleges Must Talk to Students about Vocation, was published in May 2015 by the University of Chicago Press. Presently, he is wrapping up a collaborative project on the Changing Spirituality of Emerging Adults that included a national survey of twentysomethings in America, in-depth interviews with more than 200 young adults, and ethnographic study of 11 congregations that attract scores of young adults. The co-authored book from that study is titled: The Twentysomething Soul: Understanding the Religious and Spiritual Lives of American Young Adults.
