An Appalling Breach of Faith at Mount St. Mary's

Chronicle of Higher Education – Presidential Opinion

February 11, 2016

Patricia McGuire, president of Trinity Washington University, writes:  In his remarks to Congress in September, Pope Francis said, "We need to avoid a common temptation nowadays: to discard whatever proves troublesome." He was referring to the refugee crisis, but he may as well have been speaking about the president and trustees of Mount St. Mary’s University of Maryland. President Newman’s ill-considered words about students and callous actions toward dissenting colleagues betray the Mount’s two centuries of Roman Catholic mission as well as the essential value of academic freedom in higher education.
