Challenges to Two Student Organizations


OUTSIDE CHALLENGES to the legitimacy of the club’s existence.

  • “How can a club like this exist on a CATHOLIC CAMPUS?”
  • “There is no place on a Catholic Campus for a group for GLBT persons.”

Fides et Ratio

Existence of such a group felt by some to challenge the Institution’s legitimacy…

  • “The school must not be doing its job if students feel the need for such a group.”

(Perceived threat to the institutional legitimacy from outside that then created defensive posturing within.)
