What is CIT Madness?

In this annual event, the Center for Catholic Faith and Culture hosts a fun, fast and friendly competition among an array of religious figures, scientists, philosophers, scholars, artists, athletes and others to highlight the richness of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition (CIT). The tournament will take place this year beginning April 16.

How does it work?

Inspired by basketball's March Madness tournament, this contest pits 64 contenders ("the Intellectuals") in 32 head-to-head match-ups. Intellectuals advance by receiving the majority of votes in any given round of play. Learn how to play.

How do I win?

You get points for voting AND for picking the winner in each round. Your final score is the result of how often you voted and how often you correctly selected the intellectuals who won their match-ups. The individual player with the most points wins the Grand Prize -- a Fitbit Versa 2!

Note: Part time, full time, and graduate assistant Division of Mission and Identity employees are ineligible to win the Grand Prize.

How do I get started?

Check back on Wednesday, April 1st for the link to the contest survey. In the meantime, encourage your office or group to sponsor a Catholic intellectual this year.
