The Center for the Study of Catholic Higher Education

The Cardinal Newman Society announces a new center for scholarship concerning Catholic higher education. This is a welcome addition to CNS's efforts, which has tended up to now to focus more advocacy and activism in specific situations. Here is their self-description:

Welcome to The Center for the Study of Catholic Higher Education, a new division of The Cardinal Newman Society. The Center's mission is to study Catholic colleges and universities in accordance with the guidelines of Ex corde Ecclesiae and in a manner faithful to the Holy Father and Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

As the in-house research arm of The Cardinal Newman Society, The Center will help facilitate the ongoing renewal of Catholic higher education by providing unique analysis and data available nowhere else. The Center publishes the quarterly Bulletin of Catholic Higher Education, produces the biennial Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College and works with leading Catholic educators and other leaders to conduct research and publish reports on the most pressing Catholic higher education issues.
