The International Movement of Catholic Students (IMCS) is a community
of Catholic tertiary students from across Australia and the world.
We are a movement with an orientation towards social justice and
action, informed by the student experience of catholicity.
Our ongoing cross-campus communication provides a forum for exploring
the role of young adults in today's church and society, and the
hopes, joys and struggles of fellow students. By participating in
IMCS, we are involved in the process of developing an Australian
Catholic identity in the global context.
The life of IMCS also embraces the development of personal friendship,
fostering campus communities, and the creation of a national and
international network for the purpose personal growth and social
In Australia, IMCS is supported by the Bishops' Committee for the
Laity and various campus student unions and guilds. We are also
supported by Catholic chaplains and campus ministers.
|| NEWS: We are sad to report that our movement's openness,
trust and democratic processes were recently abused by a small number
of people with next to nothing in common with IMCS spirituality. These
people have organised a stacking of our highest decision making body
and have successfully taken over our organisation. Our organisational
structures are currently being reviewed by genuine IMCSA members.
This website is thus setup to help faciliate communications between
these members, and the IMCS and wider community.
