college guide ismade possible through the cooperation of bishops, collegepresidents, our benefactors and our advertisers. This year, 28schools agreed to take our survey. The questions we asked them aredesigned such that a “Yes” answer best reflects Catholic identity:
When Benedict Says …
“Teachers and administrators
… havethe duty and privilegeto ensure that studentsreceive instruction inCatholic doctrine andpractice. This requiresthat public witness tothe way of Christ, as found in the Gospeland upheld by the Church’s magisterium,shapes all aspects of an institution’s life,both inside and outside the classroom.”— Pope Benedict XVI at The CatholicUniversity of America, April 17, 2008

CATHOLIC COLLEGEIDENTITY SURVEY
… He Remembers:
When Ratzinger was a student,
“In1947, Munich and its great uni-versity were still a heap of rubble,so the theology department hadto be accommodated in an eigh-teenth-century converted royalhunting lodge. … He slept on adormitory bunk bed in an outlyingannex. …
 
The director, professorJosef Pascher, who also lived there,imposed a strict regimen of dailyMass, lunch on a common diningarea, where he personally ladledout the soup.” Ratzinger “helped toclear the debris from the bombed-out university buildings.”
When He Says …
“In virtue of [academic] freedom
you arecalled to search for the truthwherever careful analysisof evidence leads you. Yet,it is also the case that anyappeal to the principle ofacademic freedom in orderto justify positions thatcontradict the faith andthe teaching of the Churchwould obstruct or even be-tray the university’s identityand mission.”— Pope Benedict XVI atThe Catholic University ofAmerica, April 17, 2008
… He Remembers:
“The Nazis had shut down
the theo-logical department,because CardinalFaulhaber had refusedto accept faculty whosupported Hitler.” Anti-Hitler theologian Got-tlieb Sohngen lost his job, but “provided aformative influence on the young scholar.”He was a “‘radical and critical questioner.’For him no subject was untouchable, noth-ing taboo, and at the same time he wasa man deeply committed to his Catholicfaith.”

School’s comments:
Mandatum
: “Catholic theo-logians (and philosophersand canonists) are mem-bers of an ecclesiasticalfaculty and must receivea ‘canonical mission’ fromthe local bishop/chancellorthat obliges them to ‘teachin the name of the Church’— it is different from the
mandatum
. They mustreceive a
nihil obstat 
fromthe U.S. bishops on theboard and from the HolySee before they can betenured.”
Oath:
“The Catholic facultyrecite the profession of faithin the presence of and alongwith the local bishop/chan-cellor and president atthe opening Mass of eachacademic year. Catholic fac-ulty have not been requiredto take the oath of fidel-ity because of the canoni-cal mission / 
nihil obstat 
 binding the ecclesiasticalfaculties.”

ou couldsay weare“old school” and we wouldn’t mind. You see, BenedictineCollege has beeneducating youngminds within acommunity of faithand scholarship for thelast 150 years. Even with waiting lists and record-breaking enrollment, we have not lost what isimportant to us; a residentialcampus, thriving faith life,small student-teacher ratio, inshort, our roots. Those roots goback to our founding communities,Mount St. Scholastica Monastery and St. Benedict’s Abbey. St. Benedictfounded his monastery in Subiaco, Italy over1500 years ago and established the “Rule of St.Benedict” and the tenets that are still alive on ourcampus today; moderation, hospitality, and prayer and work.Today, Benedictine College boasts one of the largest undergraduatetheology departments in America. It was named “One of the Top 20 CatholicColleges in the Country,” by the
Newman Guide to Choosing A Catholic College
and“One of America’s Best Colleges,” by 
U.S. News & World Report
. So if anyone calls you“old school,” take it as a compliment.
We certainly do.
