As reported by the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities, there are approximately 260 Catholic institutions of higher education operating in the United States today. But how can parents be sure that the college or university that they have their eye on will provide their children with an authentic Catholic experience with the Eucharist firmly grounded in the center? To learn more, we consulted with Patrick Reilly, president and founder of The Cardinal Newman Society.
Patrick Reilly has authored and edited many articles, reports, studies, and other publications on Catholic education for the Newman Society and national media. He has appeared on EWTN, FOX News, MSNBC, and numerous radio programs.
Prior to the Newman Society, Reilly served as editor and research fellow at Capital Research Center, executive director of Citizens for Educational Freedom, higher education analyst at the U.S. House of Representatives, program analyst at the U.S. Department of Education, media consultant for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and chairman of American Collegians for Life.
