Join some of the best Newman-guide universities. 
Join The Catholic Council Network.


Student Government leaders started The Network to come together, brainstorm and share ideas, and grow together in leadership.


Monthly Conference Calls

Every month, the leaders of the Network join a conference call to discuss different topics and ask each other questions. Discussion points may include:

  • Student Life
  • Campus Development
  • Athletics
  • Food Services
  • Objectives

These conference calls allow us to learn more from each other, improve upon our individual councils, and strengthen the Network's connections.

Bi-Annual Conferences

Leaders from each Network government meet at a pre-determined campus twice per academic year. Looking forward, we'll be hosting a CCN conference at the University of Dallas from October 27-29, 2017. At these conferences, the hosting school invites faculty, staff, and guest lecturers to speak. Each Council will also give a presentation on their student government and school. Through the Network conferences, we all have the great opportunity to learn from each other. 

Catholic Leaders Network

Through the monthly conference calls and bi-annual conferences, a connection is established across the nation to like-minded, Catholic schools. By coming together in solidarity, we can, not only improve upon our student governments, but grow stronger in our Catholic identities. We believe, as Catholics, it is our duty to unite and share our knowledge so that others may benefit. As the Network is only seeking the best of the Catholic schools, such as yourself, the CCN will continue to grow with the best student leaders in the nation.
