Every year, the National Catholic Register comes out with a Catholic identity list. Some of these schools are considered "New Catholic Colleges," some are not. What makes a school authentically Catholic? According to the NCR, at least some of these features:
The university president takes an "Oath of Fidelity"
The majority of trustees are Catholic
Theology professors have the Mandatum, and take the "Oath of Fidelity"
"Advocates" of stem cell research, euthanasia and abortion are excluded as recipients of honorary degrees and as commencement speakers
