Loyola University Chicago established the CCSE in the School of Education to respond to the need that elementary and secondary Catholic schools have for high quality, research-based professional development in the context of Catholic identity and mission. This conference enables CCSE and the University to design and deliver professional development in the areas of curriculum, instruction, assessment, and instructional leadership.
