This USCCB-sponsored Institute is designed specifically for campus ministers with 1 to 3 years of campus ministry experience.

The Mission of the Frank J. Lewis Institute is to orient new campus ministers to the profession of Campus Ministry.  The goal of the Institute is to provide campus ministers with an understanding of their role in the Church’s ministry to higher education and in the evangelizing mission of the Church.

The Institute also assists with the integration of previous professional experiences with the call to Campus Ministry and helps generate new ideas and program possibilities through networking with other campus ministers.
