Abstract

This paper is a redaction of four panel presentations provided at the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities' 2007 Annual Meeting held in Washington, D.C. The panelist-presenters were Dr. Gerald Killan, Ph.D., Principal, King's University College at The University of Western Ontario; Dr. Myroslaw Tataryn, Ph.D., President, St. Jerome's University; Dr. Terrence Downey, Ph.D., President, St. Mary's University College; and Dr. Michael.W. Higgins, Ph.D., President, St. Thomas University.

Post-secondary education in Canada is exclusively a provincial concern. As a consequence, and given Canada's diverse and complicated history, post-secondary Catholic education has taken a different direction from that of its immediate southern neighbor. In some respects, this difference has been a boon and, in other respects, a bit of a drawback. After a brief overview of the current national scene in Canadian Catholic higher education, this article presents four distinct representations of the Canadian post-secondary reality, embarking on an illustrative depiction of the landscape.
