Catholic higher education | Wikipedia audio article


Catholic higher education includes universities,
colleges, and other institutions of higher education privately run by the Catholic Church,
typically by religious institutes. Those tied to the Holy See are specifically
called pontifical universities. By definition, Catholic canon law states that
“A Catholic school is understood to be one which is under control of the competent ecclesiastical
authority or of a public ecclesiastical juridical person, or one which in a written document
is acknowledged as Catholic by the ecclesiastical authority” (Can. 803). Although some schools are deemed “Catholic”
because of their identity and a great number of students enrolled are Catholics, it is
also stipulated in canon law that “no school, even if it is in fact Catholic, may bear the
title ‘Catholic school’ except by the consent of the competent ecclesiastical authority”
(Can. 803 §3). The Dominican Order was “the first order instituted
by the Church with an academic mission”, founding studia conventualia in every convent of the
order, and studia generalia at the early European universities such as the University of Bologna
and the University of Paris. In Europe, most universities with medieval
history were founded as Catholic. Many of them were rescinded to government
authourities in the Modern era. Some, however, remained Catholic, while new
ones were established alongside the public ones. The Catholic Church is still the largest non-governmental
provider of higher education in the world. Many of them are still internationally competitive. According to the census of the Vatican’s Congregation
for Catholic Education, the total number of Catholic universities and higher education
institutions around the world is 1,358. On the other hand, the United States Conference
of Catholic Bishops counts it at 1,861. The Catholic religious order with the highest
number of universities around the world today is the Society of Jesus with 114.Like other
private schools, Catholic universities and colleges are generally nondenominational,
in that they accept anyone regardless of religious affiliation, nationality, ethnicity, or civil
status, provided the admission or enrollment requirements and legal documents are submitted,
and rules and regulations are obeyed for a fruitful life on campus. However, non-Catholics, whether Christian
or not, may or may not participate in otherwise required campus activities, particularly those
of a religious nature.==Partial list of universities=====Albania===
