Higher Standards for Higher Education: The Christian University and Solidarity
Speech delivered by Dean Brackley, S.J. at the Universidad Centroamericana “José Simeón Cañas” (UCA) in San Salvador, 10 years after the murder of the Jesuit Martyrs of El Salvador. Brackley references the work of the UCA, and then states: “We cannot hope to photocopy the UCA in the U.S. Yet, we need to ask how we can shape our universities to respond more faithfully, anduniversitariamente, to an unjust world, in a manner analogous to what the martyrs of the UCA did.” Includes an extensive look at education for solidarity.
