Rome Center Signing Marks Three-Continent Endeavor

On Jan. 29, Catholic University President John Garvey joined Australian Catholic University Vice-Chancellor Greg Craven for a signing ceremony for the Memorandum of Understanding on a shared Rome Center located about a mile from the Vatican. A group of about 30 deans and administrators from the two universities gathered in Curley Hall for the ceremony. When it opens in September 2015, the Rome Center of The Catholic University of America and Australian Catholic University will offer newly renovated living quarters for undergraduates, a wing for graduate students, apartments for visiting faculty, a studio for architecture majors, a chapel, and a garden, among other amenities.
