In the two-year period 1979-80, the National Congress on Church-Related Colleges and Universities was a cooperative effort of 23 denominations to examine the issues facing their institutions of higher education. The significant papers and events appear in this and three other volumes. Contents of this volume include an overview and four other sections. Section Two addresses educational purposes and programs: interdependence and enrichment, distinguishing characteristics, and identity and integrity. Section Three looks at issues of society, and the appropriate academic involvement in social issues through curriculum and other institutional efforts. The issues of racism and poverty are addressed specifically in several articles. Section Four considers forms of relationships between church and college; viable relationships, how they are made, images and expectations. Section Five contains a list of authors and critique authors, and their institutional affiliations. (MSE)
