ACCU Occasional Papers on Catholic Higher Education, v1 n1 Nov 1995
This collection provides transcripts of remarks delivered by five participants in the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities' meeting at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. They include: (1) "The Catholic Intellectual Tradition" (Margaret O'Brien Steinfels), which focuses on the willingness of Catholic institutions to take seriously their religious identity; (2) "Catholic Identity: Emerging Consensus" (Peter Steinfels), which argues that Catholic institutions must actively embrace Catholicism without imposing conformity; (3) "Trust, Cooperation, and Dialogue" (Cardinal Pio Laghi), which maintains that a university is Catholic primarily on the basis of its Catholic institutional commitment, involving all who make up the university; (4) "Initiatives in Campus Diversity" (Edgar F. Beckham), which focuses on the role of Catholic institutions in promoting diversity; and (5) "Observations and Conversations" (J. Bryan Hehir), which examines the important role of the Catholic Church in education and the community as a whole. (MDM)
