The Contribution of the Church-Related College to the Public Good.
Magill, Samuel H., Ed.
From the earliest years of its existence, the Association of American Colleges has been concerned with the place of the church-related college in American society. The reason for this is simply the conviction that something very important would be lost in the total spectrum of higher education should these colleges pass out of existence. The growing movement toward secularization in the 50's and 60's, however, has given rise to uncertainty in many quarters as to the distinctiveness of the church-related college. Moreover, many have raised the question of whether these institutions serve the public good at all. It was with these questions in mind that the Association's Commission on Religion in Higher Education decided to hold a conference on the contribution of the church-related college to the public good. Faculty, students, administrators, trustees, and church-board executives were invited to attend the conference, and approximately 50 persons convened for the 2-day session. This document contains the program of the conference and the issues discussed. Although the issues were not finally resolved by the conference, it is felt that a greater understanding of the alternatives for church-related higher education has been achieved. (HS)
