A Jesuit University: History and Governance
Exploring the Jesuit and Catholic dimensions of the university's mission
Three books offer interesting accounts of the organization of U.S. Jesuit colleges and universities, the issues
that shaped their growth and development in the 20th century, and their relationships with their peer
institutions and competitors:
William P. Leahy, S.J., Adapting to America: Catholics, Jesuits, and Higher Education in the Twentieth Century
(Georgetown University Press, 1991).
Kathleen A. Mahoney, Catholic Higher Education in Protestant America: The Jesuits and Harvard in the Age of
the University (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2003).
Paul A. FitzGerald, S.J., The governance of Jesuit Colleges in the United States, 1920-1970 (University of
Notre Dame Press, 1984).
