Institutional Commitment to the Catholic Social Tradition: Implicit or Explicit?
Weigert, Kathleen Maas; Schlichting, Kurt; Brandenberger, Jay
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v37 n1 p29-51 Win 2018
All Catholic colleges and universities share in the Catholic Church's rich history of Catholic Social Teaching (CST). This article explores two key research questions that focus on that grounding in today's world: First, how strongly is CST woven into the institutional fabric of those institutions; second, is that done implicitly or explicitly? We offer an analysis of mission statements, curricular offerings, and established centers at eleven Catholic colleges and universities as a pilot study for examining current efforts to embed CST into the structures of Catholic institutions of higher learning.
