The Boston College Roundtable brings together scholars and administrators from Catholic colleges and universities to discuss the vision and promise of Catholic higher education in the United States today. This initiative aims to explore the value and meaning of a Catholic education in the contemporary context and further the conversation about mission as it relates to the pursuit of truth, the quest for knowledge, and the fostering of human flourishing.

Each Roundtable, meeting once per semester for two years, is structured around a particular theme. Presenters discuss their understanding of the theme through the perspective of their disciplines and the Catholic intellectual tradition, and also comment on the implications for the broader mission of the Catholic university.

Integritas publishes the papers presented and discussed at each meeting. Each issue includes a paper, a response, and a summary of the Roundtable conversation. The aim of this new initiative is to model and elicit conversation among University leaders, faculty and administrators around issues from the Catholic tradition that both inspire and challenge Catholic colleges and universities in the United States today.
