Facing the Future.
Gallin, Alice, Ed.
Current Issues in Catholic Higher Education, v3 n2 Win 1983
Ways that Catholic colleges and universities are trying to fulfill their role are discussed in articles by six college presidents and a church historian. In "The Catholic Liberal Art College: Has It a Future?" John Tracy Ellis notes some of the roots to be reaffirmed by Catholic colleges. In "Preparing for the Millennium," Theodore M. Hesburgh summarizes choices colleges must make in the next two decades. Bernard J. Coughlin, in "The Importance of Intellectual Work," emphasizes the importance of teaching and scholarly work to society. In "Religion: The Tradition and What Is to Come," Luke Salm explores the role of religion in Catholic higher education today and models by which a college can consider itself Catholic. Robert H. Conn provides an ecumenical perspective on the role of church-related colleges in the formation of human, and humane, values in "Cloning the Doves of Peace." In "Universities and Weapons Research," William J. Rewak discusses new choices and challenges facing the university regarding defense contracts and weapons research. Finally, in "Draft Registration and Federal Student Aid," David M. Johnson provides a perspective on recent development regarding the link between draft registration and federal student financial aid. (SW)
