Catholic Distance University (CDU) is a private Roman Catholic university based in Charles Town, West Virginia, in the United States. It exclusively offers online undergraduate and graduate degrees and certificate programs. CDU's programs aim to meet the goals set out in the Ex Corde Ecclesiae issued by Pope John Paul II regarding Catholic colleges and universities. CDU was the first Catholic institution to offer an MA in Theology completely online. Several Catholic dioceses partner with CDU to help train their catechists. The chairman of the board of trustees is Dr. Charles R. Wasaff, and Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio of the archdiocese for the Military Services, USA, serves as university chancellor and vice chairman of the board of trustees.
