The mission of the Knights of Columbus College Council Program is to promote the moral, intellectual and spiritual development of the future leaders of civil society, the Order, and the Church through witness to the Gospel and dedication to the principles of charity, unity, fraternity and patriotism.

In addition to their own regular programming, the councils come together on the Fifth Tuesday of each month to plan and collaborate for the upcoming quarter.  By pooling resources, the college councils are able to accomplish larger events and impact the greater community.
