Mission Statement

Founded in 1983 by Bishop Thomas Welsh, CDU exists to educate adults worldwide in the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church through the techniques and technologies of distance education. Our motto, Gaudium et Spes, or joy from the truth, captures the essence of CDU's mission. We believe that each person should experience the joy of encountering Christ, who is the "Way, the Truth, and the Life." CDU invites adults to experience what St. Paul called "....transformation through the renewal of your mind." (Rom 12:22)
