Gonzaga Must Hire Faithful Catholics to Preserve its Catholic Identity

Recent articles by notable academics regarding Catholic higher education provide an opportunity for reflection on the direction of Gonzaga’s Catholic identity. Writing in America Magazine, Michael Naughton, Don Briel, and Kenneth E. Goodpaster call on Catholic university faculty and administrators to avoid the temptation to remake their organizations in the image of other academic institutions, but instead to work to maintain “a distinctive Catholic vision, and with that, ultimately, their universities’ true meaning, purpose and unique identity.” Meanwhile, at Catholic World Report, Loyola Marymount University Professor of Philosophy Christopher Kaczor reacts to a recent survey of LMU faculty that raises questions about the Catholic identity of Gonzaga’s sister Jesuit university, questions that should be of concern to the Gonzaga community as well.
