Patterns for lifelong learning by Theodore M Hesburgh( Book )

20 editions published between 1973 and 1978 in English and Spanish and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book presents ideas of three university presidents of how basic changes in attitudes toward education can help build new learning systems that help move forward the concept of lifelong learning and meet the needs of contemporary society. The three separate but related investigations of the authors were conducted through the support of the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. Part 1, a study of Continuing Education and the Future, was an outcome of a national conference in 1971; it includes the findings of four task forces that examined the relationship of adult and continuing education to social responsibility, public affairs, the role of the college and university, and the rapidly growing body of knowledge. In Part 2, Universities and the Learning Society, the author analyzes the influence of adult and continuing education on the academic community, the shaping of civic policy, and the creation of new lifestyles. The third part concerns the findings of a lifelong education task force at Michigan State University and is an example of the requirements of a large, complex institution accommodating itself to adult education needs in the modern world.

The Hesburgh papers : higher values in higher education by Theodore M Hesburgh( Book )

2 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 617 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responds to the critics who see the teaching of religion and values as a hindrance to institutions of higher learning: "No university is truly a university unless it is catholic, or universal" in the sense that it "moves every scholar to look beyond his immediate field of vision to the total landscape of God and man and the universe." Why values in education? "Because wisdom is more than knowledge, man is more than his mind, and without values, man may be intelligent but less than fully human."

The challenge and promise of a Catholic university by Theodore M Hesburgh( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contemporary Catholic higher education finds itself at a crucial crossroad. The issues are many and complex. How is the Catholic character of the university to be preserved and fostered while avoiding secularization on the one hand and insular sectarianism on the other? Must a majority of the faculty in a college or department be Catholic? How is Catholic to be defined in terms of culture, belief, or practice? What is the level of commitment to intellectual inquiry and the possibility of dissent that must be present on a Catholic campus?" "These are some of the issues that prompted Fr. Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., to write a position paper and invite 29 distinguished members of the faculty and administration at the University of Notre Dame to address as they strive to envision and create a great Catholic university." "The contributors explore these issues from a wide variety of religious and academic perspectives, and although their backgrounds and fields of study differ widely, they agree on a number of points. First, a great Catholic university must begin by being a great university that is also Catholic. Second, the catholicity, or universality, of a Catholic university fosters the centrality of philosophy and particularly theology as legitimate intellectual concerns, especially as they challenge the disintegration and turmoil of our modern predicament. Finally, how a Catholic university is seen as a community of service is also examined in both its intellectual and practical applications. Throughout, these essays describe a university community where reason and faith intersect and reinforce each other as they grapple with all the problems that face the transmission and growth of knowledge and the multiplication of new and complex moral problems."--Jacket

Foreign policy & morality : framework for a moral audit by Theodore M Hesburgh( Book )

4 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two papers and several commentaries discuss a viable moral framework for foreign policy. It is hoped that the thought of some of the world's major thinkers can provide at least the foundations for a more enduring approach to the issues of political morality. The two main papers are by Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., president of the University of Notre Dame and one of America's most untiring defenders of civil and human rights and by Professor Louis Halle of Geneva, author of numerous books on foreign policy and the study in universal history, "Out of Chaos." The two writers approach the moral problem from different points on the intellectual spectrum. Father Hesburgh approaches the problem from the standpoint of America's responsibility to express and exemplify its historic national goals and moral vision in foreign policy. Professor Halle's approach is from the perspective of the national interest. He maintains with some of the "Founding Fathers" that the first duty of the United States is not in moral preachments but in the moral example it provides to the rest of the world by its conduct at home. Following the two papers are commentaries by leading representative thinkers from the United States and the world. The commentaries illuminate the similarities and differences between the two viewpoints and subject them to critical review. (Author/RM)

To all the daughters of Notre Dame, I would like to say I can't tell you how proud I am of the fact that you all bear Notre Dame degrees. By your lives and your goodness, you have changed the world in many ways." —Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C. * In honor of the 90th birthday of retired president Father Theodore M. Hesburgh, C.S.C., University of Notre Dame undergraduate alumnae and campus celebrities thank him for the gift of coeducation and discuss its impact on their lives. Thanking Father Ted: Thirty-Five Years of Notre Dame Coeducation contains more than 150 letters from alumnae worldwide, from Notre Dame's first woman undergraduate degree recipient in 1972 through women recently admitted to the class of 2011. These letters detail the history of Notre Dame coeducation for the first time from the perspective of alumnae themselves. This book is also the first time administrators and trustees have recounted their experiences in transitioning Notre Dame to coeducation. The book includes celebrity letters from such notables as former coaches Lou Holtz and Ara Parseghian, television personality Regis Philbin, NBC news chief financial correspondent Anne Thompson and athletes Joe Theismann, Tom Clements and Joe Montana. * The Thanking Father Ted Foundation will donate all profits from the book to fund a scholarship at Notre Dame in Father Ted's name in honor of his 90th birthday in 2007
