The Northern Iteration: Challenges, Successes, and Opportunities of Catholic Universities in Canada
Higgins, Michael W.
Current Issues in Catholic Higher Education, v26 n1 p109-119 Win 2007
This paper is a redaction of four panel presentations provided at the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities' 2007 Annual Meeting held in Washington D.C. The panelist-presenters were Dr. Gerald Killan, Ph.D., Principal, King's University College at The University of Western Ontario; Dr. Myroslaw Tataryn, Ph.D., President, St. Jerome's University; Dr. Terrence Downey, Ph.D., President, St. Mary's University College; and Dr. Michael W. Higgins, Ph.D., President, St. Thomas University. Post-secondary education in Canada is exclusively a provincial concern. As a consequence, and given Canada's diverse and complicated history, post-secondary Catholic education has taken a different direction from that of its immediate southern neighbor. In some respects, this difference has been a boon and, in other respects, a bit of a drawback. After a brief overview of the current national scene in Canadian Catholic higher education, this article presents four distinct representations of the Canadian postsecondary reality, embarking on an illustrative depiction of the landscape.
