    The Enhancing Catholic School Identity Project is developing research instruments and resources with the assistance of the Catholic University of Leuven (K.U. Leuven) to support schools to understand better how their Catholic identity is expressed in work and practice and support them in their future development. The Steering Committee monitors the development of the research instruments, the reports to schools and the research website including the 'On the Fly' graphs and the file exchange pages. The Steering Committee maintains an ongoing dialogue with the K.U. Leuven to oversee the implementation of the project.
