As established by the Society of Jesus to provide education based on Catholic beliefs, Sogang University is a member of several international affiliations.


  • The Association of Christian Universities and College in Asia (ACUCA) is a community of Christian institutions of higher learning in Asia. It has a comprehensive mandate of bringing about a veritable community of Christian institutions in the region by working closely together to benefit each other as the societies in which they exist. The ACUCA Secretariat has been designed to be instrumental for creating the environmental prerequisites for active interaction and participation among the member-institutions to take place. In realizing this goal, there must be a continuing response to the changing conditions of Asian societies, a constant awareness of educational development in the region, and a resolute will to actualize the Christian witness even in academic pursuits. Through cooperation, mutual support, and encouragement, the Association endeavors to help the Christian universities and colleges in Asia to:

    • Develop and maintain their Christian character.
    • Enrich the quality of their educational programs and those of the other institutions of learning
    • Re-examine the relevance of their objectives and programs in relation to the needs of a changing society


  • The Association of Southeast and East Asian Catholic Colleges and Universities (ASEACCU) is a regional association of Catholic Universities in countries within this geographical area. The purpose of the organization is to promote Catholic higher education and to be a support for the local Churches. ASEACCU also aims to contribute to educational dialog on an international level beyond the Southeast and East Asian region.

    Following the guidelines of the “Apostolic Constitution on Higher Education”, “Ex Corde Ecclesiae”, the purpose of the association is defined as follows:
    • To serve as a forum for member institutions.
    • To reflect on how they put into practice the ideals of a Catholic university as expressed by “Ex Corde Ecclesiae” and other official documents of the Church.
    • To ascertain whether they have correctly defined and continuously maintained their identity as Catholic schools.
    • To dialog freely and at the highest levels and to share resources among themselves and with other educational institutions and governments both internationally and in their own countries, in their common quest for academic excellence.
