The Church, the College, and the State--Changing Patterns of Relationship.
Whelan, Charles M.
Church-related colleges are facing the problem of pleasing both their sponsoring churches and the government in order to obtain the funding from each agency that is needed for the survival of the institutions. To solve the political problem, the church-related colleges must persuade the legislatures, both state and federal, to include them in constitutionally permissible ways in substantial programs of public assistance to higher education. To solve the ecclesiastical problem, the church-related colleges must persuade the churches with which they are affiliated that despite the changes they have to make in order to satisfy the judicial and legislative branches of the government, they remain a vital and indespensable ministry of the churches, well worth their cost in terms of personnel and money.
