Higher educators to talk about common issues

The Australian Catholic University has invited members of the public to attend a public Catholicity Forum tonight, to hear the Chief Executive Officers at three of Sydney's Catholic tertiary education institutions speak on the issues facing Catholic higher education today.

The Catholicity Forum is being held at 7.30pm in the Leone Ryan Auditorium at the North Sydney Campus, 40 Edward Street, North Sydney.

ACU National Vice-Chancellor, Professor Peter Sheehan AO; Vice-Chancellor from the University of Notre Dame Australia, Dr Peter Tannock and President of Campion College Australia, Reverend Dr John Fleming will each provide an individual address.

"I warmly welcome the community to attend this unique occasion," said Professor Sheehan. "The evening will be most symbolic of our capacity as heads of individual Catholic higher education institutions to get together and mutually dialogue about what Catholic identity means to each of us."

The forum will be chaired by the Chair of ACU National's Goals Committee, ACU National Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Academic Affairs), Professor Gabrielle McMullen.

A panel of four will also be present to stimulate discussion following the addresses from each CEO. The panel includes, Bishop of the Diocese of Broken Bay, Bishop David Walker; President of the Catholic Institute, Sydney, Reverend Dr Gerard Kelly; Sister Maryanne Confoy RSC from the Jesuit Theological College, Melbourne and ACU National Professor of Theology and Head of the Sub-faculty of Philosophy and Theology, Dr Neil Ormerod.
