Preserving The Sponsoring Tradition...A Dissertation

John M. Pressimone's dissertation, Preserving the Sponsoring Tradition: A Study of Catholic Colleges and Universities Founded by Religious Orders, is available on the Benedictine University web site.  Completed in 2013, the study seeks to identify best practices in preserving identity of the religious community sponsor.  Pressimone's first chapter includes a good historical overview of Catholic higher education in the U.S. The conclusions he draws from his study are certainly applicable to a wider audience across the higher education community.
