Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism

Dear Friends,

Founded in 1975, the University of Notre Dameā€™s Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism is widely recognized as the leading center for the historical study of Roman Catholicism in the United States. Cushwa Center seminars, conferences, research projects, and publications engage the Notre Dame campus community as well as an international body of scholars. In all its undertakingsā€”teaching, research, publication, and mentorshipā€”the center brings together students and researchers from a variety of disciplines to interpret the American Catholic past and to bring that history to bear on contemporary questions in public life and the Catholic Church.

Weā€™re in the midst of preparing for a very significant milestone in the centerā€™s history: In 2025, the Cushwa Center will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its founding. The year will include two large conferences and several other opportunities for education and celebration.
