|Early Registration Date: Mar 08, 2007|

What is the purpose of Catholic higher education?
What is the proper relationship between the Catholic university and the Catholic Church?
What distinguishes a Catholic university from its secular counterparts?
What is the Catholic university’s responsibility to the culture at large?
Is there a common thread that should run through the missions of all Catholic universities?
From April 19-22, 2007, presidents, senior administrators, and key faculty members from a broad spectrum of Catholic colleges and universities will gather to discuss these and other pressing questions. Hosted by Franciscan University of Steubenville, the four-day symposium is meant to be an opportunity for dialogue, a chance for those in-volved in Catholic higher education to share their understanding of their mission, assess the potential impact of Catholic colleges and universities on today’s world, and reflect upon the tradition and future of the Catholic intellectual tradition.
In addition to a series of paper presentations and panel discussions, the conference will feature four keynote addresses by internationally recognized leaders in Catholic higher education, including the inaugural Henkels Lecture, delivered by Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CBS, Secretary of the Congregation for Catholic Education at the Vatican.
