This chapter begins with a skeptical look at conventional wisdom, suggesting how following its dictates can stifle creative approaches to critical cultural problems in organizations. This discussion is followed by a list of possible programs or strategies Catholic colleges and universities might adopt that challenge one or more forms of the conventional wisdom. In each instance, the source of the conventional wisdom is identified, the distinctively different way of proceeding is outlined, and its efficacy detailed. The suggestions are divided into four groups: academic incentives, student living and activities initiatives, campus ministry initiatives, and administrative and governance initiatives.

Keywords:   Catholic, conventional wisdom, strategies, academic, campus ministry, administration, governance, initiatives
