Classical Association of the Atlantic States

Catholic University is a proud member of CAAS, our regional professional organization for the study and teaching of classics from the primary school through the university and professional levels.

CAAS provides grants and scholarships to students and educators for a variety of projects, including special events and study abroad.

CAAS holds a meeting every fall that takes the form of a productive and friendly conference, an excellent venue for graduate students and professionals to read scholarly papers.

Professor William Klingshirn is a past President of CAAS, and Dr. Sarah Ferrario, our department chair, is chair of the CAAS Awards Committee and a past Director from the DC region. Pleasecontact Dr. Ferrario if you are interested in joining CAAS or learning more about its opportunities!
