This chapter examines four different models that Catholic colleges and universities adopt with respect to sharing the Catholic heritage. It also examines how the economics of higher education steers Catholic institutions toward one approach rather than another. The four models are: immersion, persuasion, diaspora, and cohort. The models describe the Catholic higher education market, with particular reference to Catholic identity. They also provide a framework for analyzing the comments made by senior administrators and for understanding some of the major challenges these administrators face with respect to Catholic identity. The first part of the chapter examines basic assumptions about goals, and then gradually makes the models more explicit by identifying important activities in various sectors such as the academic program, residential living, student activities and religious activities. A nonsectarian model is developed for comparison purposes.

Keywords:   Catholic, models, economics, market, framework, immersion, persuasion, diaspora, cohort, nonsectarian
