INSIGHT by Fr. John Bradley It is often said today that we live in times that are marked by successive crises. There is, I believe, much truth in this, and to my mind the deepest crisis of our times is a crisis of meaning. So many people today seem to lack conviction about their identity as human beings, their ultimate purpose in life. This, of course, engenders a meaninglessness that erodes motivation and causes people to settle for drifting from day to day instead of living their lives with zest, enthusiasm, and the fulfillment that God meant us to have. In like manner, institutions will drift from day to day unless the people involved in them constantly keep before them the identity, the goals and purposes of these institutions. With these thoughts in mind, the Board of Trustees has approved the following statement on the identity, goals and purposes of Belmont Abbey College: What is Belmont Abbey College? The conventional answer to this question is that it is a four-year coeducational liberal arts college offering the B.A. and inOA XNVHi Isten to their Instructors at last bbey Basketball Camp.

C. 28012 philosophy of education does indeed revere the search for truth, but does not stop short at intellectual ex cellence. Rather, it is concerned with the total development of the person and the contribution he or she can make to the entire human family. Belmont Abbey College is committed to this philosophy of education and is especially concerned with examining, and where appropriate challenging, the values that are predominant in modern society.
