2019 ASACCU Conference

The summer conference for 2019 is hosted by University of Dayton located in beautiful Dayton, Ohio. The conference begins on Tuesday afternoon, July 16, 2019 and concludes Friday, July 19, 2019. 

The 2019 Conference theme is "Taking Flight:  Developing Leaders for the Common Good." 

Founded in 1850 by the Marianists (Society of Mary), the University of Dayton is a top-tier Catholic research university.  The University of Dayton is one of the largest private universities in Ohio, distinguished by their academics, research, and community involvement.  The Catholic and Marianist vision of education makes the University of Dayton community unique.  It shapes the "warmth of welcome" we first experience when we arrive on campus and the family spirit we treasure long after graduation.  It calls us to academic rigor integrated with faith and life.  It challenges each of us to take up the hard work necessary to build the intellectual, spiritual, religious, moral, physical, and social dimensions of our education community.

Meet the 2016 ASACCU Conference Keynote Speakers

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.
