The Challenge of Catholicity.
Gallin, Alice, Ed.
Current Issues in Catholic Higher Education, v8 n2 Win 1988
The character and mission of Catholic institutions of higher education are discussed in nine articles. Questions that are posed include: what issues of the Catholic tradition need to be further examined; what additional reading of the Vatican II texts are appropriate; how is one to understand the American context within which the Catolic mission is to be carried out; and how can Catholic colleges and universities respond to current challenges. Titles and authors are as follows: "Remarks on Behalf of the Ministry of Catholic Higher Education in America" (Francis J. Kerins); "Address to Leaders of Catholic Higher Education" (Pope John Paul II); "How Is the University Catholic?" (J. Patout Burns); "Some Dissent about Dissent within the Catholic Church in the Context of Catholic Universities" (Paul J. Goda); "Catholic Colleges Need Academic Freedom" (Quentin L. Quade); "The Need for Open Inquiry at Mount Saint Mary's" (Robert Ducharme); "American Pluralism and Catholic Identity in Higher Education" (Alice Gallin); "The American Catholic University: Pluralism and Identity" (Joseph A.
