A Framework for Success: Newman's Recipe for Right Relationships between Catholic Colleges and Universities and Their Increasingly Non-Catholic Administrators, Faculty, and Students
Boegel, Ellen K.
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v31 n1 p39-59 Win 2012
Universities struggling to recapture their Catholic identity in an increasingly pluralistic campus environment learn from "Idea of a University" that Catholic identity is fostered by two essential elements: a culture of the intellect and a loyal Catholic spirit. Catholics and non-Catholics can build vibrant Catholic campuses by working together to find the right relationship between academic freedom and religious responsibility. This article encourages Catholic universities to open their doors to non-Catholics while also embracing the Catholic Intellectual Tradition and recognizing the academic relevance of Catholic thought to all disciplines. Catholic identity will flourish when faculty and students are free to debate and discuss controversial issues while learning the nuanced and often multi-faceted Catholic response to those issues. (Contains 101 footnotes.)
