The Catholic Church has been operating universities for a thousand years and was involved in education for a thousand years before that. When John Paul II issued the apostolic constitution Ex Corde Ecclesiae (15 August 1990), he restated the tradition and experience of the Church as it relates to Catholic universities.

He explained the role of faith in the working of the faculty, staff, and students. He also set down how research and teaching are illuminated by faith. The university is an intellectual community but it is intellectual in a uniquely Catholic way because it respects the truth. As Pope Benedict XVI said: “Only in faith can truth become incarnate and reason truly human, capable of directing the will along the path of freedom” (cf. Spe Salvi, 23).

It is this faith that nourishes and guides the Catholic university and makes it a genuine intellectual community. Catholic Distance University takes Ex Corde Ecclesiae as its guiding light.

Catholic Distance University does not discriminate against any applicant or student on the basis of sex, race, color, age, national origin, religion, disability, or any other status protected by applicable law.
