Higher Education Administrators in Catholic universities face unique roles and responsibilities compared to their peers in secular institutions. Likewise, administrators are faced with unique challenges and opportunities because of the university’s Catholic identity. These challenges extend to the unique roles that men and women play in the constitution of both the university’s and the Church’s missions. This dynamic of challenge and opportunity on a Catholic campus is rooted in the Church’s understanding of the roles of both men and women.
To this end, on Thursday, April 26th at 5:30pm in the Heights Room of the Corcoran Commons, C21 will sponsor a conversation about faith and the vocation to serve others with three women, from different generations and backgrounds, who draw from their professional, personal, faith-filled experiences to make significant contributions to the Church. [Information for Women for Others, Leaders for the Church]
The panel will be moderated by Boston College Vice Provost for Faculties, Patricia De Leeuw. Joining her will be Paula Ebben ’89, Nancy Pineda-Madrid, and Elizabeth Stowe Fennell ’05.
These conversations ought bear fruit in further dialoging about how the particular roles and responsibilities and challenges and opportunities of women in Catholic higher education provide the potential of personal formation of self and professional development.
