Yes, a Catholic College Can Exist
Keenan, James F.
New England Journal of Higher Education, v22 n4 p23-24 Win 2008
In his essay, "Can a Catholic College Exist Today?" the new Assumption College President Francesco C. Cesareo offers a manifesto of his way of governing a Catholic institution "in the midst of pluralism" (The New England Journal of Higher Education, Fall 2007). Cesareo extols adherence to a single Catholic intellectual tradition and insists that Catholic colleges neither condone nor endorse behavior that is contrary to the church's moral teachings. In this article, the author offers a different perspective. He explains that there is more than one Catholic intellectual tradition and more than one way for Catholic colleges to address the church's moral teachings.
