What I Overheard in the Sesquicentennial Conversation
Cadegan, Una M.
Catholic Education: A Journal of Inquiry and Practice, v10 n1 p61-75 Sep 2006
Catholic higher education is in many ways still responding to the challenge first articulated by John Tracy Ellis in his 1955 essay. In efforts to promote both a unique Catholic identity and a culture of excellence on par with secular institutions, Catholic universities can learn much from their historical context, founding religious communities, and contemporary experience. This essay suggests some practical applications for campus life and governance that might be culled from a university's religious history.
