Institute for Catholic Liberal Education
Mary Rice Hasson is the Kate O’Beirne Fellow in Catholic Studies at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C. She also directs the Catholic Women’s Forum, a network of Catholic professional women and scholars seeking to amplify the voice of Catholic women in support of human dignity, authentic freedom, and Catholic social teaching.
Elisabeth Sullivan is the Executive Director of the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education. A former journalist, Beth found her passion for Catholic liberal education while exploring authentic formation in faith and reason for her own children.
Professor Hanby came to the Institute in 2007 from Baylor University where he was Assistant Professor of Theology in the Honors College and Associate Director of the Baylor Institute for Faith and Learning. Before that he was Arthur J. Ennis Fellow in the Humanities at Villanova University.
Robert Royal is the founder and president of the Faith & Reason Institute in Washington, D.C. and editor-in-chief of The Catholic Thing. He holds a B.A. and M.A. from Brown University and a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the Catholic University of America.
Panelists explore the pernicious effects of secular progressive education, and its infiltration of Catholic schools. By examining the nature and purpose of Catholic education and its roots in the classical liberal arts tradition, the panel will recognize how neglect of our own tradition undermines both faith and reason in our children. A dynamic renewal, however, is transforming and inspiring a growing number of Catholic schools who are reclaiming the Church’s tradition.
