Gerald Beyer, “Just Universities in the Age of Corporatized Higher Education”


Beyer’s recent book, Just Universities: Catholic Social Teaching Confronts Corporatized Higher Education, argues that many Catholic colleges and universities have developed strong efforts to promote justice in the world. However, efforts to confront racism, white privilege, classism, and economic injustices and other inequities within our own institutions, have sometimes not been as successful, and are sometimes met with resistance, in spite of Catholic social teaching’s call to justice “within the walls” of Catholic colleges and universities. Selections from the book were popular as a new reading at this year’s summer colloquy. You may also have seen Mary Roche’s very positive review of the book in the last Collegium News.
