The AJCU Conference of Theology & Religious Studies Chairs brings together the leaders of Jesuit college and university departments that provide undergraduate and/or graduate education in Theology and Religious Studies as liberal arts disciplines. Members meet annually at the meetings of the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature, in addition to gathering periodically on a Jesuit university campus.
Topics of discussion have recently included the place of Theology / Religious Studies in the core curriculum; the recruitment and retention of undergraduate majors and minors; internationalization; and the promotion of social justice through teaching and research. Chairs from departments with MA, MTS, and/or Ph.D. programs also share best practices with regard to graduate education.
