Lilly Network of Church-Related Colleges and Universities

One of the three Lilly Fellows Program initiatives is the Lilly Network of Church-Related Colleges and Universities.

The National Network addresses issues of common interest to institutions in church-related higher education. The 100 members of the Network represent a diversity of denominational traditions, institutional types, and geographical locations.  Through their collaborative efforts they explore and discuss the relationship of Christianity to the academic vocation, and strengthen the religious nature of church-related institutions through a variety of activities and publications.

The National Network is directed by a 12-member National Network Board.

Each Year the National Network sponsors a National Conference and Workshop for Senior Administrators.

The National Network Sponsors a series of Programs, Grants, and Awards for Network Members.
