Greene -- * Appendix B: Participants in the Boston College Sesquicentennial Symposium on Catholic Higher Education. . . . . . . . . . As part of its Sesquicentennial celebration, Boston College invited leading Catholic educators to a symposium concerning the future of Catholic higher education in the United States. Participants gathered from October 22-24, 2013, at BC's Connors Family Retreat and Conference Center in Dover, Massachusetts. They discussed four critical issues requiring engagement by Catholic educational leaders: (1) strengthening awareness of and commitment to the Catholic intellectual tradition on Catholic campuses; (2) ensuring the personal and religious formation of students; (3) clarifying the relationship of Catholic colleges and universities to the Church, and (4) identifying and preparing future leaders of Catholic postsecondary institutions. The essays in this volume provided context for the days at Dover, and are intended to spotlight and urge action on critical challenges facing American Catholic higher education today.
