The heart of a university is its faculty. In the words of John Henry Newman, the faculty is “an assemblage of learned [persons], zealous for their own sciences, and rivals of each other, [who] are brought, by familiar intercourse and for the sake of intellectual peace, to adjust together the claims and relations of their respective subjects and investigation. They learn to respect, to consult, and to aid each other. Thus is created a pure and clear atmosphere of thought which the student also breathes.

The Faculty Assembly of the Catholic University of America provides a forum for discussion and a means for concerted action. Its aim is to bring the faculties of the various Schools of the University together for discussion and action on issues of importance and common concern to the University as a whole.

On May 7, 2018, the Faculty Assembly By-Laws were approved. The first election of officers will take place at the start of the Fall 2018 semester.

On December 5, the Faculty Assembly will vote on updated Bylaws.
