Catholic Colleges in the 21st Century

This book examines social and pastoral issues that impact the direction of campus ministry at Catholic colleges and universities in the United States today. A paradigm shift has occurred from the Vatican II generation till now in which their children, as well as their non-Catholic companions, make up the student bodies of 21st century Catholic colleges and universities. Immersed in a world of consumerism, postmodernist doubt, and post-9/11 xenophobia, today s students of Catholic colleges and universities live in a world of cultural pluralism as well as religious diversity. Further, their lifestyles and life goals differ greatly from previous generations and urge a new pastoral response by campus ministers. 

To that end, this book provides today s campus ministers, and those in training, with a roadmap to assist them in navigating the following issues:

  1. Catholic Identity: balancing Catholic identity and cultural pluralism;
  2. Student Profile: understanding 21st century Catholic college culture;
  3. Role of Campus Minister: responding to the spiritual, pastoral, and emotional reality of Catholic college students;
  4. Academics: theology, philosophy, core curricula requirements;
  5. Student Activities: integrating core Catholic values;
  6. Student Life: respecting and nurturing faith traditions;
  7. Social and Political Engagement: promoting peace and justice;
  8. Annotated Bibliography of Recommended Texts.
