Christian Smith, John C. Cavadini Building Catholic Higher Education

1477 руб.
American Catholic universities and colleges are wrestling today with how to develop in ways that faithfully serve their mission in Catholic higher education without either secularizing or becoming sectarian. Major challenges are faced when trying to simultaneously build and sustain excellence in undergraduate teaching, strengthen faculty research and publishing, and deepen the authentically Catholic character of education. This book uses the particular case of the University of Notre Dame to raise larger issues, to make substantive proposals, and thus to contribute to a national conversation affecting all Catholic universities and colleges in the United States (and perhaps beyond) today. Its arguments focus particularly on challenging questions around the recruitment, hiring, and formation of faculty in Catholic universities and colleges.In an increasingly secularized culture, where institutions can be tempted to ignore or sideline their Catholic identity, Professors Smith and Cavadini offer a striking, rich, and alternative vision.--Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop, Fort Wayne-South BendFully embracing the ambitious goal of Notre Dame's president to create first-rate undergraduate and graduate programs, all rooted intellectually in Catholicism, Christian Smith spells out why it is very difficult to achieve all three . . . As difficult as it is to reach that goal, Smith suggests a way forward.--James L. Heft, President, Institute for Advanced Catholic StudiesBuilding Catholic Hig...

6502 руб.
The purpose of this book is to provide student affairs professionals who work at Catholic colleges and universitiesa tool for reflection and dialogue on difficult issues they face on their campuses. It is intended to be used instaff development sessions, in training sessions with student leaders and resident assistants, and in master's levelstudent affairs preparation programs at Catholic colleges and universities. This book is the next step in a series ofprojects that began in the early 1990s after the publication by the Vatican of the apostolic constitution Ex CordeEcclesiae. This book is a collection of case studies that focus on particular issues related to Catholic identity thatare faced by student affairs professionals who work at Catholic colleges and universities. By its very nature, thefocus on the difficult issues we face is a limitation. The editors in no way wish to imply that Catholic identity isonly about problems. Previous research and experience clearly indicates those who work at Catholic institutionsunderstand and embrace the opportunities that this environment provides for them. But as Schaller and Boyle(2006) indicated, there is a need for dialogue around the difficult issues that we face. The editors believe that abook of case studies is particularly helpful because it allows a staff to discuss problems at fictionalized universitiesand then ask themselves, "What would we do here?"The editors solicited cases using a mailing list provided by the...

Religious Pluralism, Democracy, and the Catholic Church in Latin America

1864 руб.
The Roman Catholic Church in Latin America faces significant and unprecedented challenges. Most prominent among them are secularization, globalizing cultural trends, intensifying religious competition, and pluralism of many kinds within what were once hegemonic Catholic societies. The substantial and original essays in this volume assess the ways in which the Catholic Church in Latin America is dealing with these political, religious, and social changes. Most importantly, they explore how democracy has changed the Catholic Church and, in turn, how religious changes have influenced democratic politics in Latin America. Drawing on the experiences of several countries to illustrate broad themes and explain divergent religious responses to common challenges, the contributors advance the notion that the Catholic Church's effectiveness in the public sphere and even its long-term viability as a religious institution depend on the nature and extent of the relationship between the hierarchy and the faithful. The essays address the context of pluralist challenges, the ideational, institutional, and policy responses of the Catholic hierarchy, and the nature of both religious beliefs and democratic values at the individual level in Latin America today.Contributors: Frances Hagopian, Ronald Inglehart, Soledad Loaeza, Cristián Parker Gumucio, Patricia M. Rodríguez, Roberto J. Blancarte, Mala Htun, Catalina Romero, and Daniel H. Levine.

4189 руб.
American Catholic women rarely surface as protagonists in histories of the United States. Offering a new perspective, Kathleen Sprows Cummings places Catholic women at the forefront of two defining developments of the Progressive Era: the emergence of the "New Woman" and Catholics' struggle to define their place in American culture. Cummings highlights four women: Chicago-based journalist Margaret Buchanan Sullivan; Sister Julia McGroarty, SND, founder of Trinity College in Washington, D.C., one of the first Catholic women's colleges; Philadelphia educator Sister Assisium McEvoy, SSJ; and Katherine Eleanor Conway, a Boston editor, public figure, and antisuffragist. Cummings uses each woman's story to explore how debates over Catholic identity were intertwined with the renegotiation of American gender roles.

Norman R. Smith Top Problems Facing Colleges. And What to Do

1427 руб.
Top Problems Facing Colleges lists the sixteen most daunting challenges facing the majority of private colleges in America. Many pundits have predicted that hundreds of the approximately two thousand private colleges in existence will fail and close within the next decade or so. What is happening? Over the past fifty years since the 1960s, the majority of college students have gravitated away from private colleges and toward community colleges and public universities, which is the result of massive public higher education expansion during the baby boom college years of the 1970s. The comparative high cost of private colleges, combined with growing doubts about the relative value of private college degrees, has resulted in major enrollment declines that are placing many private colleges in financial jeopardy. At the same time, the Internet is making these problems more apparent to prospective students and their families, thereby intensifying the seriousness of the crisis for many smaller, unendowed colleges. Top Problems offers strategies for colleges being subjected to these declines that can help avoid demise and construct a template for survival and even future success. The book is written for senior officers and trustees of private enrollment-revenue-dependent colleges. The sixteen problems cited include the need for challenged colleges to completely rethink the way in which they select presidents and trustees, along with the need for better cost management that will likel...

The Old Catholic Church aims at informing and inspiring its readers to reflect and entertain the theological richness of the Old Catholic churches of the Union of Utrecht, a Catholic tradition that is unknown and misunderstood by many in North America. Caruso presents much more than a mere history book about Old Catholicism by focusing on its historical origins to better explain the eucharistic nature of the local catholic Church; to which he simultaneously highlights some of the real struggles faced by Independent Old Catholics in North America with regard to this trinitarian and eucharistic understanding of the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic Church.

Catholic schools have long contributed to the mission of the Church and to the flourishing of society. During the past few decades, however, Catholic schools have suffered severe losses, both in their religious identity and in their capacity to attract students.With penetrating insights, pointed anecdotes, and drawing upon recent empirical studies and Church documents, Ryan Topping describes the near collapse of Catholic education in North America and uncovers the enduring principles of authentic renewal. In The Case for Catholic Education you'll discover: · the three purposes of Catholic education· why virtue is more important than self-esteem· the elements of a true "common core" curriculum· essential differences between "progressive" and "Catholic" models of learning· helpful study questions and a research guide "This is an accessible and eminently readable book on a topic which no Catholic can afford to ignore."--Joseph Pearce, Aquinas College, Nashville, TN"The Case for Catholic Education speaks to the heart of the debate over whether Catholic education is 'worth it.'"--Sister John Mary Fleming, O.P., Executive Director for Catholic Education, USCCB"The Case for Catholic Education will surely play a vital role in reinvigorating the handing-on of essential Catholic truths."--Sister Joseph Andrew Bogdanowicz, O.P., Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, Ann Arbor, MI"This short book contains an as...

In I Am Proud to be a Catholic: What Is Unique About Being a Catholic? Duane Crosland explores the highlights of what is unique about being a Catholic and why a person should be proud to be a Catholic. In asking the average person why they are a Catholic the standard responses are “I was born a Catholic” or “I was raised a Catholic”. These responses indicate a need for a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and a fuller appreciation for the gift that Jesus Christ gave to all of us. The book hopes to attract the “wavering”, the “fringe”, the “fallen away”, the “coasting” but “committed” and “committed” Catholics - giving them simple reasons as to why a person should be proud to be a Catholic. The book may also attract a person that is not Catholic but is interested in the details of the Catholic faith. A person will gain a high level understanding of what it means to be a Catholic with a focus on what is unique about being a Catholic written in easy layman’s terms often supported by biblical quotes.

As an evangelizing arm of the church, Catholic education plays an indispensable role in introducing young people to rudimentary elements of the Catholic faith as well as creating human and social capital. In spite of the numerous contributions Catholic education has made in the area of socio-economic development, many people don't understand what Catholic education is nor appreciate its contribution in the character formation and overall enhancement of human capital.This book is written to explain what Catholic education is, its mission, its identity, and its challenges. The audience the book seeks to serve includes diocesan policymakers and those in charge of in-service training and formation programs aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of leadership practice in Catholic schools. This book is also a useful resource for Catholic school leaders and administrators. It is a must-read for students undertaking graduate studies in Catholic school leadership and new emerging leaders and administrators in Catholic education.

5214 руб.
Stand and Prosper is the first authoritative history in decades of black colleges and universities in America. It tells the story of educational institutions that offered, and continue to offer, African Americans a unique opportunity to transcend the legacy of slavery while also bearing its burden. Henry Drewry and Humphrey Doermann present an up-to-date and comprehensive assessment of their past, present, and possible future. Black colleges fully got off the ground only after the Civil War--more than two centuries after higher education formally began in British North America. Despite horrendous obstacles, they survived and even proliferated until well past the mid-twentieth century. As the authors show, however, the 1954 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Brown v. Board of Education brought them to a crucial juncture. While validating the rights of blacks to pursue opportunities outside racial and class lines, it drew the future of these institutions into doubt. By the mid-1970s black colleges competed with other colleges for black students--a welcome expansion of choices for African-American youth but a huge recruitment challenge for black colleges. The book gradually narrows its focus from a general history to a look at the development of forty-five private black colleges in recent decades. It describes their varied responses to the changes of the last half-century and documents their influence in the development of the black middle class. The authors underscore the vital impor...

Higher Education is the driving force for Socioeconomic development of a nation. One of the most important features of higher education in India is education through colleges, which may be professional or general in nature. These colleges may be Government or private or deficit grants-in-aid colleges. The state Government purely controls Government colleges in all respects whereas private colleges are controlled and administered by the private parties or trusts. But a deficit grants-in-aid college is neither purely Government College nor private college. A deficit grants-in-aid college is one where state Government provide fund for staff payment, etc. after adjusting some portion of the student tuition fee of this required fund. The present study is mainly confined on Financing of Higher Educational Institutions (viz., deficit grants-in-aid colleges) of Lakhimpur district. Further, an attempt has been made to study the problems of deficit grants-in-aid colleges as well as its affiliation and management along with the development of collegiate educations in Assam and Lakhimpur district. This book is highly useful for the research scholars who want to do study in this area.

In this new book, Arthur F. Marotti analyzes some of the rhetorical and imaginative means by which the Catholic minority and the Protestant majority defined themselves and their religious and political antagonists in early modern England. He considers Catholic writings that have been relatively neglected, as well as the discourse of anti-Catholicism. Straddling the boundary of history and literature, this study offers an intriguing cultural history that focuses on the ideologized fantasies and language found on both sides of the early modern Christian religious divide.Marotti focuses on the period between the arrival of the first Jesuit missionaries in England in 1580 and the climax of ongoing religious conflict in the Restoration-era “Popish Plot” and the 1688 “Glorious Revolution.” In a series of thematically focused essays, he covers such issues as the relationship of print culture to the residual Catholic culture in Elizabethan England; recusant women, Jesuits and the cultural “othering” of Catholics, martyrdom accounts, the manuscript circulation of Catholic martyrdom accounts; polemically charged Catholic and Protestant narratives of conversion; and the depiction of Catholic plots or outrages and providential Protestant deliverances in the construction of Protestant English history and identity.This important and eagerly anticipated book makes a substantial contribution to our understanding of Catholicism and anti-Catholicism in the early modern period.

Institutions of higher education are constantly facing economic challenges to their survival. Nowhere are the challenges greater than in small private colleges and universities across America. None of these colleges can assume that its stability is assured in perpetuity. No thriving college is immune from unforeseen disaster, just as no struggling college is irreversibly destined for closure. This issue presents stories of colleges in crisis and considers what makes the difference between a college that closes and one that nearly closes but manages to remain open. It offers a range of revealing, hard-won experiences of college presidents who led their campuses in times of crises. Some colleges found no way out, and their stories offer lessons that are just as valuable as the stories of colleges that reinvented themselves and survived. This is the 156th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Higher Education. Addressed to higher education decision makers on all kinds of campuses, it provides timely information and authoritative advice about major issues and administrative problems confronting every institution.

In North America over the last three decades, no one has thought as long and hard about the nature of the Catholic university, has been so passionate in its avowal, so visionary in its conception, and so persistent in reminding all who would listen that the university is a specifically Catholic achievement and the Catholic university an enduring legacy, as John Cavadini.As the long-time chair of the Department of Theology at the University of Notre Dame and the even longer-serving McGrath-Cavadini Director of the McGrath Institute for Church Life, John C. Cavadini has provided a vision for leadership in Catholic higher education and especially the Catholic university's call to serve the Church with unparalleled creativity, industriousness, and hope. The breadth and wisdom of Cavadini's distinctive leadership is a model for guiding the Catholic university along its unique mission, both within higher education and for the life of the Church. This vision is captured in Cavadini's person and, by extension, in the initiatives, projects, and institutional activities that he has designed and executed. The vision is difficult to see all at once because of its comprehensiveness but, once glimpsed, it shines as a standard by which leadership in Catholic higher education may be measured. This leadership has never been more necessary for the life of the Catholic university and its service to the Church.""Simply put, this is a must-read for Catholics and all students c...

Catholic elementary school principals, speaking out in a major nationwide survey, report faithfulcommitments alongside acute challenges in the operation of their schools, and they identify financialmanagement, marketing, Catholic identity, enrollment management and long-range planning as theirschools' top five areas of need.The study, completed by the University of Notre Dame's Alliance for Catholic Education and its MaryAnn Remick Leadership Program, is a rare, comprehensive glimpse of these principals' views on whatthey need in order to do their jobs better and how they describe the state of Catholic education today."It is difficult to read the responses of Catholic school principals in this study and not sense both their commitment to this ministry and theoverwhelming responsibilities that are associated with it," say the authors of "Leadership Speaks: A National Survey of Catholic Primary SchoolPrincipals." They paint a picture of many principals as faith-filled individuals confronting unusually challenging expectations, worthy of new forms ofsupport, such as their own national association.The study provides enormous amounts of data describing today's Catholic school principals and outlining their views, and the authors conclude withfour recommendations:• Develop "new models of governance for Catholic elementary schools" that shift the panoply of principal responsibilities "into a moremanageable and realistic position descriptio...

Yaghmaee Saman Predicting Completion Rate at Public Community Colleges in California

Public policies and economic conditions have raised the expectations toward institutions of higher education, community colleges in particular, to produce more graduates and skilled workers. This study examines the impacts of institutional characteristics and administrative practices on completion rates at public community colleges in California. The study conducted a one-way ANOVA analysis to predict completion rates based on the institutional size, geographical location, and the number of community colleges in a district. It also conducted multiple regression analysis to predict completion rates based on employee compositions at each public community college in California. Results indicated that (a) small and medium size institutions had lower completion rates than large and very large ones, (b) rural institutions trailed behind their suburban and urban counterparts, (c) having two or three community colleges in a district predicted the highest completion rate compared to single district colleges and districts with four or more colleges, and (d) tenured faculty was the only variable that significantly correlated with the completion rate when compared to other categories.

Independent Catholics are the fastest-growing variety of Catholic in the West. They are found in every city of every state in the U.S. and Mexico, every Province of Canada, and throughout Australia, Europe, and South America. This book arises out of a need in the Independent Catholic community for a compact and concise introduction to the movement. This is intended to be a book that can introduce interested people to the movement in a friendly, easy-to-read style that will not tax their patience or their wallets. The Independent Catholic movement is wonderfully diverse, and it is not possible to adequately cover the full spectrum within an introductory volume of this size. Rather, this book focuses on the most common varieties of Independent Catholicism in hopes of providing a short, useful orientation to the newcomer.

In an irresistible series of short, sparkling chapters, Dale Ahlquist defends the Catholic faith against a wide variety of attacks that come at it from all sides.Combining quick wit, sympathetic understanding, and plenty of quotes from G.K. Chesterton, Ahlquist takes on such things as Atheism, Agnosticism, Islam, Protestantism, Materialism, Social Engineering, Environmentalism, as well as the many groups who openly oppose the moral and theological teachings of the Catholic Church.Whether in the headlines, in the classroom, or in friendly, late night debates, the Catholic doctrine is challenged on every subject, every idea, every issue. But conversely, every conversation is a ready opportunity to demonstrate the truths of the Catholic Church. In other words, "All roads lead to Rome."

American Catholic universities and colleges are wrestling today with how to develop in ways that faithfully serve their mission in Catholic higher education without either secularizing or becoming sectarian. Major challenges are faced when trying to simultaneously build and sustain excellence in undergraduate teaching, strengthen faculty research and publishing, and deepen the authentically Catholic character of education. This book uses the particular case of the University of Notre Dame to raise larger issues, to make substantive proposals, and thus to contribute to a national conversation affecting all Catholic universities and colleges in the United States (and perhaps beyond) today. Its arguments focus particularly on challenging questions around the recruitment, hiring, and formation of faculty in Catholic universities and colleges.In an increasingly secularized culture, where institutions can be tempted to ignore or sideline their Catholic identity, Professors Smith and Cavadini offer a striking, rich, and alternative vision.--Kevin C. Rhoades, Bishop, Fort Wayne-South BendFully embracing the ambitious goal of Notre Dame's president to create first-rate undergraduate and graduate programs, all rooted intellectually in Catholicism, Christian Smith spells out why it is very difficult to achieve all three . . . As difficult as it is to reach that goal, Smith suggests a way forward.--James L. Heft, President, Institute for Advanced Catholic StudiesBuilding Catholic Hig...
