FOUNDERS WEEK 2021 PDF Print E-mail


Founders Week, an annual tradition at Assumption, is an opportunity to remember the University's founders, the Assumptionists who in 1904 welcomed the first class of students to the institution and their many collaborators who have contributed to the growth of Assumption over the past 117 years.

The theme chosen for our celebration is "It's All about Soul!" It was inspired by our new Mission Statement, approved by the Board in May and now being officially launched during Founders Week.  The Statement says that, at Assumption, we "provide students with an education that shapes their souls…"  This week is an opportunity for all of us to think again about Assumption's mission and to measure the challenges that it presents to us.  We'll be able to do this in a variety of ways during the week.  The Founders Week Committee hopes you will be able to participate in as many of the week's events as possible.

Check out the AU app for more information about the Week.  An announcement will be sent out on each day of the week to remind you of upcoming events.  Here is a summary schedule of the week's events:
