Current Issues in Catholic Higher Education, v6 n1 Sum 1985
Influences and issues concerning Catholic higher education are considered in seven papers, five of which were presented at the 1985 annual meeting of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities. In "Partnership in a New Key," David J. O'Brien considers the new sectarianism in American Catholic higher education and an alternative to this position. Paul C. Reinert's article, "'To Turn the Tide' Revisited," considers the growth and improvement in Catholic colleges as well as difficult questions of viability and strength in the future. High school graduation and dropout rates, college attendance rates, and the age composition of college students are examined by Elaine El-Khawas in "Demographics of the Decade: A Closer Look." Additional demographic information is provided by Michael J. Guerra in "The Catholic High School Student: A National Portrait." In addition, Mary Daniel O'Keeffe describes a study completed on adult education programs in "The Catholic College as Locus for Adult Degree Programs." The authors of the following two articles suggest that the quality of environment in Catholic colleges and universities may be seen as "value added": "Are Catholic Colleges Still Catholic?" (William J. Parente); and "Address to the National Catholic Student Coalition" (Joseph Cardinal Bernardin). (SW)
