"The way forward for Catholic University is to be an example of an institution that places its emphasis on the human person." — Dr. Peter K. Kilpatrick

Every great university has to at the same time be excellent in educating our students and at discovering new knowledge. A modern university can’t just be a teaching institution. We need to be excellent at both, and I’m thrilled by what I see at Catholic University.

Serving as president of The Catholic University of America is a dream job for me, bringing together faith and reason in service to the human person and human dignity. I look forward to working with the faculty and community to continue moving Catholic University forward as a top tier research institution that also embraces its excellence in theology and the arts.

— Dr. Peter K. Kilpatrick, president of The Catholic University of America
