DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Loras College President Jim Collins was unanimously elected board chair of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities, the school announced Monday in a press release. As chair, Collins will lead the national association by serving its member campuses in a number of timely and critical ways, helping to foster vibrant Catholic identity at member institutions, facilitating cooperation among members and responding to emerging member needs.

“It is an honor to serve as ACCU Chair and I am humbled by my colleagues' affirmation. Faith-based education serves as one of the critical components in our nation's founding and ACCU plays a prominent role in ensuring these foundational elements as ever worth advancing in an increasingly secular culture,” said Collins in a release.

Before being elected to board chair, Collins served as vice chair, secretary/treasurer and as a member of the executive committee.
