Program 1

Cardinal Newman Society programs include: * Advocacy Campaigns: The Cardinal Newman Society frequently mobilizes its grassroots membership in letter-writing campaigns to respond to scandals and promote the Faith in Catholic higher education. Annual campaigns include a January-February protest of "The Vagina Monologues" on Catholic campuses and an April-May protest of inappropriate commencement speakers and honorees. * Media Outreach: Media education and alerts to ensure fair and accurate reporting on issues related to the implementation of Ex Corde Ecclesiae and renewal of Catholic higher education. * Support and Advice: Confidential consultation for trustees, administrators, faculty, staff, students, and alumni who are working according to their proper roles within the higher education community to strengthen Catholic identity. * Research & Special Reports: Eye-opening reports on major developments and trends in Catholic higher education, such as the influential report, "The Culture of Death on Catholic Campuses: A Five-Year Review." * College Guide: The Cardinal Newman Society is preparing its first "Guide to U.S. Catholic Colleges & Universities," a resource for prospective students and others including information related to each institution's Catholic identity. * Eucharistic Evangelization Ministry: This national campaign promotes Eucharistic adoration on college campuses. Launched in 2002 as a project of the Association of Students at Catholic Colleges, the campaign now stands alone (www.eeministry.org). * Student Outreach: The Cardinal Newman Society links and supports student groups and individual students at Catholic colleges and universities across the country, and helps students establish new groups concerned with living the Catholic faith in a way that is faithful to the Magisterium of the Church and building Catholic campus culture. Students are directed into training programs to help develop a Christian culture on campus by taking on leadership roles with campus ministry, prayer groups, Catholic fellowship groups, campus publications, student government, pro-life clubs, etc. * Conferences & Events: The last national conference was in November 2003, titled "Professor, Philosopher, Pope: The Legacy of Pope John Paul II." Philosopher Ralph McInerny, theologian Michael Novak, and Jesuit scholar Father James Schall addressed three major themes of Pope John Paul II's pontificate: the unity of faith and reason, restoring seriousness to Catholic theology, and the renewal of Catholic higher education according to Ex Corde Ecclesiae. Rev. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., addressed student leaders on Pope John Paul II's encyclical Ecclesia de Eucharistia and its relevance to student life.
