HISTORY OF AICUF

The All India Catholic University Federation is a movement of university students with a vision for a new and just society.

It is indicated by the abbreviation AICUF. The movement was started in 1924, at St.Joseph’s College, Tiruchirappalli by Fr. Carty, SJ. Currently it operates in 14 states of India.

The organization is affiliated to Pax-Romana, an international association of catholic professionals (IMCS).

VISION

The AICUF’s vision is to sensitize students towards those at the margins and involve ourselves in the struggle for their basic rights by equipping ourselves physically, intellectually and spiritually while networking with NGOs and peoples’ movements.

 

MISSION

To enable students to develop a critical awareness and analysis of the Indian and world situation, to cultivate a deep and genuine concern for the oppressed and marginalized and to effectively commit themselves to the task of building a new and just society.

To help students evolve spirituality that has humanization as its core, through involvement and reflection.

To motivate students to become involved in studies, research and activities linked to broader social issues and struggles with a view to becoming a creative and critical force within the university.

To enable Christian students to play a prophetic role in their communities through a living and critical understanding of their faith, drawing inspiration from the Gospels, the Eucharist and their prayer life.

 

PREAMBLE

The members of the All India Catholic University Federation stand for the service and liberation of all human persons, as Jesus did, irrespective of caste, sex, language or belief.

As members of the larger human family, AICUFers affirm their solidarity with all those engaged in the struggle for peace, human and democratic rights and for a world marked by growing economic interdependence and equality. The members recognize and respect plurality of cultures, religions and ideologies contributing to the growth of human beings as created in the image of God.

As Citizens of India and an integral part of a nation striving to discover a new identity and to build a new and just social, economic and political order, we opt to place ourselves on the side of the oppressed and the marginalized and continue to struggle till the end.

As men and women in the universities, the members understand that these institutions, though part of an unjust power structure, still provide space for debate and dissent which we shall utilize in the process of social change.

As members of a Christian movement, the members draw inspiration from the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, in our attempt to build, in solidarity with men and women of various faiths, a new society and university in tune with the needs and aspiration of oppressed masses.
