One University's Attempt to Name the Franciscan Charism in Higher Education
Govert, Mary Evelyn
Journal of Catholic Higher Education, v29 n1 p59-72 Win 2010
This paper was originally written to help colleagues at the University of Saint Francis to understand the concept of the Franciscan charism, a goal integral to part of our Strategic Plan in 2002. Many staff and faculty questioned why the Strategic Planning Steering Committee chose such a word for the core of its vision for the institution. Through the revision process of that plan, we have come to a greater understanding of the richness of the Franciscan charism. This paper is offered as a model to help colleagues at other institutions understand this tradition.
