Building Catholic Higher Education
Unofficial Reflections from the University of Notre Dame
Imprint: Cascade Books
"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 Bend
"Fully 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 Studies
"Building Catholic Higher Education offers a compelling vision of the unique contribution Catholic colleges and universities make to higher education, and explains why we should take care to preserve them."
--John Garvey, President, The Catholic University of America
