The International Federation of Catholic Universities today brings together nearly 250 universities worldwide. Created in very diverse conditions, with a variety of religious sensibilities, our universities also evolve in extremely different contexts. One of the constants of their work, however, is always to question their Catholic identity, which is a matter of constituted traditions as well as of constituent traditions.
The health crisis has accelerated older developments, in particular the growing role of EdTech in higher education. These transformations concern the governance of universities, their very organization, teaching and pedagogy, and therefore the evolution of the profession of teacher-researcher.
The Global Catholic Education Report 2021 and a short video are now available on the Global Catholic Education website.

Four times a year, IFCU’s Foresight Unit suggests five leading trends to watch in the higher-education sector over the coming months or years.
Trends & Innovations is an IFCU series of interviews with leading figures from the higher education sector worldwide, who present projects, research, initiatives or innovations of particular interest that can stimulate viewers and give them a sense of where trends in academia and beyond are going. The interviews last approximately 30 minutes and allow speakers to introduce their subject freely and informally. They are made available on our website and on YouTube, where viewers can access them at their convenience.
