2012 National Catholic Register's Catholic Identity College Guide

DeSales University appears in the list of 33 faithful Catholic schools in the National Catholic Register’s (NCR) 2012 Catholic Identity College Guide.

NCR’s Catholic Identity College Questionnaire offered objective questions about a university’s Catholic identity. The editors designed the questionnaire so that a “YES” answer reflects essential elements of the renewal of Catholic identity called for by Pope John Paul II’s 1990 apostolic constitution on higher education, Ex Corde Ecclesiae (Out of the Heart of the Church), its 2000 “Application to the United States,” canon law, and other relevant Church documents.

The guide is published here:

The National Catholic Register ( provides its readers with timely news reporting from across the United States, the Vatican, and around the world.
