EVENT: January 23 Conference on Catholic Higher Education in Arlington, VA

Conference on Catholic Higher Education to be held in Arlington, VA

For the first time in Arlington Virginia, the Institute of Catholic Culture and The Cardinal Newman Society and are cosponsoring a presidential conference entitled CRISIS: Catholic Higher Education and the Next Generation. With hundreds of thousands of pro-life activists descending on the nation’s capital for the March for Life, this conference invites attendees from around the country to come head-to-head with the ever increasing crisis in Catholic higher education.

Society is at a crossroads in the educational formation of the next generation, and the Church offers the only true way forward. Under attack from the secularist agenda, a new generation of Catholic intellectuals have reacted by working to reestablish centers of opportunity in which our youth can engage in a genuine Catholic education.

Join the Institute of Catholic Culture and The Cardinal Newman Society in welcoming the presidents of faithful Catholic colleges to discuss and debate the crisis and¬ find a solution to the education of the next generation.

This conference will be held Saturday, January 23, 9 am - 3:00 pm at St. Thomas More Cathedral Hall in Arlington, Virginia. The conference is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
