What is the nature of a university? What is the role of religion in the life of the university? What is a Catholic University? In A Catholic University, Msgr. Terrence J.Murphy addresses these fundamental questions by taking an in-depth look at the University of St.Thomas in St.Paul/Minneapolis, where he serves as chancellor. He identifies what makes a university a Catholic university and demonstrates how Catholicism can be an integral driving force of the university.
"[This] is a valuable story of a Catholic college journey to breadth, largeness, and University Stature while preserving-indeed enhancing-its special qualities as a 'faith community."'
