Current Issues in Catholic Higher Education, v11 n1 Sum 1990
In 1976 the National Conference of Catholic Bishops celebrated the bicentennial of the Independence of the United States by sponsoring a national conference on issues of justice. As a result of that conference, a task force was formed and a proposal was made to the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities for a pilot project that would raise consciousness in institutions and help find ways to educate students in the crucial questions of peace and justice. This volume presents a 3-year report and evaluation of the pilot programs. Following a brief introduction by Alice Gallin, 10 papers examine the issues. The papers are: "The Tradition of Peace and Justice and the Bishops' Pastorals on Peace and the Economy" (Thomas A. Shannon); "The Role of the Laity in the World" (Georgia Masters Keightley); "Beyond the Ivory Tower: Some Guidelines for Social Justice Education" (Edward A. Malloy); "Homily, Stonehill College, Chapel of Mary, 1989" (John J. Egan); "Peace with God the Creator, Peace with All of Creation" (John Paul II); "What is Happening to Our Beautiful Land" (a pastoral letter, Phillipines); "Our Relationship wiht Nature" (a pastoral letter, Dominican Republic); "The American College in the Ecological Age" (Thomas Berry); "A Terrestrial Dogmatism?" (Everett Gendler); and "Getting from Here to There" (Betty Reardon). (DB)
