About the ICUU

The International Council of Unitarians and Universalists is a body devoted fostering connections between Unitarian and Unitarian Universalist groups around the world. Our mission is spelled out in our Constitution. In 2007 the ICUU also adopted the following statement:

The Mission of the ICUU is to:

  • Build relationships through communication and collaboration;
  • Develop spiritual community among member groups and their leaders;
  • Identify and nurture prospective and emerging groups;
  • Foster our U-U faith for mutual inspiration, development and growth.

It is comprised of delegates appointed by national bodies that meet in full Council meetings every two years. At those gatherings the formal business of the Council is decided, policies are set, budgets and financial statements approved, and program directions chosen.

The Council is funded by contributions from national groups following a formula based on the number of members they report. There are two levels of contributution reflecting the differences between the developing and the developed world.

In between Council meetings, the programs of the ICUU are managed and developed by a volunteer Executive Committee supported by a paid Executive Secretary and a team of volunteers around the world.
