Rizzi, Michael – Journal of Catholic Higher Education, 2020
The 1960s saw rapid decentralization of authority in Catholic higher education as virtually all U.S. universities legally separated from the Church.

Sable, Jeffrey J. – Journal of Catholic Higher Education, 2020

Kelly, Conor – Journal of Catholic Higher Education, 2019
The humanities have long played a pivotal role in Catholic higher education but their prominence is under siege as part of a broader cultural skepticism about the value of the liberal arts.
