Engagement with Pluralism: A New Way of Understanding and Fostering a Catholic Culture within Catholic Universities
Strain, Charles R.; Halstead, James; Drexler, Thomas
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v28 n2 p169-186 Sum 2009
This article engages in a critical dialogue with Melanie N. Morey and John J. Piderit, S.J.'s "Catholic Higher Education: A Culture in Crisis". It proposes a fifth model, the "Catholic Engagment model". It elaborates that model by examining a working paper, "Catholic Identity and the DePaul Student Experience," that has been used in workshops at DePaul University which explore seven "deep structures" in the Catholic tradition that can form bridges linking people in a pluralistic campus culture.
