Hervé Carrier’s thought on tertiary education applied to contemporary Pontifical Universities in Rome

ABSTRACT
This paper is at same time a brief summary of Hervé Carrier’s thought on catholic tertiary education and an inquiry on its relevance for today. The entire paper focuses on five points which are present in his 1969 Gregorianum article: (1) the balance between research and teaching; (2) access to university education; (3) the organization of the university community; (4) the relationship between education and contemporary culture and (5) the role of universities within civil society. An inductive principle guides the qualitative research carried out in five pontifical universities in Rome (with 42 interviewees) to gather data on the relevance of Carrier’s thought. A
dialogical strategy is adopted to compare Carrier’s thought with data from surveyed universities. In spite of the difference between the social context from which Carrier developed his thought and the current socio-ecclesial context of pontifical universities in Rome, most of the ideas he defended are, more or less, part of the core vision of the surveyed universities. Though slightly different from one university to another, the major findings of this research endeavour suggest the adoption of the following major goals: improvement of teaching through the use of modern technological and didactic
means, increase of the means for research through funding and new research position, strengthening of participatory mechanisms to maximize students’ and faculty’s inclusion in university’s decisional schema, intensification of a discerning embrace of “new cultures” in all activities, and of training of students to affect social transformation.
Keywords: Hervé Carrier, Pontifical Universities, tertiary education, Veritatis

Hervé Carrier’s thought on tertiary education applied to contemporary Pontifical Universities in Rome

ABSTRACT
This paper is at same time a brief summary of Hervé Carrier’s thought on catholic tertiary education and an inquiry on its relevance for today. The entire paper focuses on five points which are present in his 1969 Gregorianum article: (1) the balance between research and teaching; (2) access to university education; (3) the organization of the university community; (4) the relationship between education and contemporary culture and (5) the role of universities within civil society. An inductive principle guides the qualitative research carried out in five pontifical universities in Rome (with 42 interviewees) to gather data on the relevance of Carrier’s thought. A
dialogical strategy is adopted to compare Carrier’s thought with data from surveyed universities. In spite of the difference between the social context from which Carrier developed his thought and the current socio-ecclesial context of pontifical universities in Rome, most of the ideas he defended are, more or less, part of the core vision of the surveyed universities. Though slightly different from one university to another, the major findings of this research endeavour suggest the adoption of the following major goals: improvement of teaching through the use of modern technological and didactic
means, increase of the means for research through funding and new research position, strengthening of participatory mechanisms to maximize students’ and faculty’s inclusion in university’s decisional schema, intensification of a discerning embrace of “new cultures” in all activities, and of training of students to affect social transformation.
