September 8, 1989 13 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Washington Continued &am page 4 student body." He added that for 1988-89 students received $34 million in aid, and 30 percent was from the university. Nationally, financial aid from public and private sources has hit the $26 billion mark and helped some 5 million students. Jerry Flanagan, dean of ad- missions at St. Michael's Col- lege, Winooski, Vt., said schools have a tough balancing act -- keeping costs reasonable while keeping quality high. At the school run by the Society of St. Edmund, tuition, room and board and fees total $12,990. New paper drafted By CINDY WOODEN Catholic News Service ROME (CNS} -- The educa- tional mission of Catholic universities must remain distinct from the evangelizing mission of the church, said a revised Vatican draft document on Catholic higher education. But Catholic colleges and universities can contribute to the task of proclaiming the Gospel, the new draft said. The document, obtained by Catholic News Service in Rome, is less than half the length of the previous working paper, released in November 1988. "People have limited resources, but by cutting costs you're cutting quality. If you cut too much, they don't get what they deserve," said Flanagan. Higher costs mean some students can't go to college, especially private schools. Often hardest hit are minority students, but many Catholic school officials told CNS that applications are increasing even among minorities. All reported specific recruitment efforts to reach minorities. Rising costs also have not dissuaded prospective students on Catholic teaching It incorporates changes recommended by some 230 representatives of Catholic col- leges and universities meeting in Rome last April. "This document is written to encourage Catholic universities and their communities, and to assist them in preserving and strengthening their identity and renewing their dedication," the revised draft said. A 15-member commission appointed at the end of the April meeting was scheduled to work on the latest draft docu. ment Sept. 6-8 in Rome. :..

Operated by the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament, the school charges $5,000 tuition for the year, an increase of $400 over last year, and $2,800 for room and board. Sondra Reine, coordinator of recruitment, said 85 percent of the students have some form of financial aid. The new freshman class totals about 700, up about 80 over last year. For students who need loans, "we tell them to look at finan- cial aid as an investment in their future," Ms. Reine said. Xavier gives black students a better chance at succeeding, Ms. Reine said. "We're finding a trend back to black colleges," she said, ad- ding that at Xavier, "we have standards with sympathy." She said students are expected to perform at a certain level, but "we bridge the gap between where they are and where they should be. You don't find that in predominantly white schools." At St. Michael's minority enrollment has taken "a giant leap," with 22 minority students in a freshman class of 430, said Flanagan. He said that's due in part to help from the new Sister Thea Bowman Black Catholic Educational Foundation that has targeted 50 African-American students to help attend private Catholic colleges.
