university mission and ministry
The Boston College Roundtable brough together scholars and administrators from Catholic colleges and universities to discuss the vision and promise of Catholic higher education in the United States. This initiative aimed to explore the value and meaning of a Catholic education in the contemporary context and furthered the conversation about mission as it relates to the pursuit of truth, the quest for knowledge, and the fostering of human flourishing. Integritas published the papers presented and discussed at each meeting. (Archived)
