Catholic University President to Receive St. Thomas More Award

John Garvey, president of The Catholic University of America (CUA), will be honored with the St. Thomas More Award for his contributions to Catholic higher education, the Catholic Citizens of Illinois recently announced.

Mary Anne Hackett, president of Catholic Citizens of Illinois, told The Cardinal Newman Society:

At a time when many Catholic universities are turning away from the teachings of the Church, Catholic University is restoring Catholic moral values to the University under Mr. Garvey’s leadership.

Since taking over as president of CUA in 2010, Garvey has taken many steps toward solidifying the University’s reputation as faithfully Catholic, including beginning the process of returning the University to single-sex dorms.

Garvey will deliver a keynote address on the topic of “Virtues in Higher Education” at the Catholic Citizens of Illinois annual benefit dinner on Sept. 25.  In receiving the St. Thomas More Award, Garvey joins past recipients including Phyllis Schlafly, Michael Rose, Bill Donohue, George Weigel and Raymond Arroyo.

The Catholic University of America is recommended by The Cardinal Newman Society in The Newman Guide for its strong Catholic identity.
