Campion College President Sees Educational Revolution in Australia

Campion College in Australia believes it can "become Australia's equivalent of some of the world's greatest universities," according to

The College president, Oxford-educated American Dr. Ryan Messmore, said, "Campion is revolutionising education in Australia. Too many students look upon a tertiary degree just as a passport to personal privilege, but that kind of approach is far too narrow and unfulfilling."

"We don't narrow the field of study as other institutions do," Dr. Messmore said. "We rather approach our curriculum in terms of teaching students how to think, how to write well, how to communicate well and how to problem solve."

"Our identity, mission, goals, the decisions we make are all anchored in our Catholic faith," he said.

Campion's local bishop, Bishop Anthony Fisher, OP, has high praise for the academic offerings at the College:

"The tradition of the liberal arts is apt to help students be 'educated for eternity' and is something far more important than a career," he said.

"Catholics believe in the unity of truth... Campion's offering of an integrated tertiary degree that exposes students to theology, philosophy, literature, history and other disciplines - and their interconnectedness - enables students to appreciate this unity of truth."

Dr. Messmore's vision for Campion College extends far, according to the report.

"Our students will be able to exercise a reflective, responsible leadership in positions of influence, and within a generation we will see a real cultural change as a result of that," he said.

The Cardinal Newman Society recommends Campion College at for its strong Catholic identity.
