This book argues against the conventional idea that Protestantism effectively ceased to play an important role in American higher education around the end of the 19th century. Employing Princeton as an example, the study shows that Protestantism was not abandoned but rather modified to conform to the educational values and intellectual standards of the modern university. Drawing upon a wealth of neglected primary sources, Kemeny sheds new light on the role of religion in higher education by examining what was happening both inside and outside the classroom, and by illustrating that religious and secular commitments were not neatly divisible but rather commingled.

In 1981, Frederick Houk Borsch returned to Princeton University, his alma mater, to serve as dean of the chapel at the Ivy League school. In Keeping Faith at Princeton, Borsch tells the story of Princeton's journey from its founding in 1746 as a college for Presbyterian ministers to the religiously diverse institution it is today. He sets this landmark narrative history against the backdrop of his own quest for spiritual illumination, first as a student at Princeton in the 1950s and later as campus minister amid the turmoil and uncertainty of 1980s America. Borsch traces how the trauma of the Depression and two world wars challenged the idea of progress through education and religion--the very idea on which Princeton was founded. Even as the numbers of students gaining access to higher education grew exponentially after World War II, student demographics at Princeton and other elite schools remained all male, predominantly white, and Protestant. Then came the 1960s. Campuses across America became battlegrounds for the antiwar movement, civil rights, and gender equality. By the dawn of the Reagan era, women and blacks were being admitted to Princeton. So were greater numbers of Jews, Catholics, and others. Borsch gives an electrifying insider's account of this era of upheaval and great promise. With warmth, clarity, and penetrating firsthand insights, Keeping Faith at Princeton demonstrates how Princeton and other major American universities learned to promote religious diversity among their students, teachers, and administrators.

The services that have been provided by colleges and universities in the United States and the current confusion regarding the role of American higher education are reviewed. Among the contributions made by higher education are: extending higher learning to new classes of people, advancing the nation's frontiers, providing scientific expertise during wartime, and helping veterans return to rewarding civilian pursuits. Presently, the external needs for higher learning's services are apparently less urgent than in the past and colleges are questioning their purposes in society. Three historic functions of higher education are examined: teaching, research, and service. It is suggested that there are new challenges for higher education. Colleges must not only teach, but must also educate a generation of students quite different from those of the past. Not only must they conduct research, but they must do so with reduced federal support and must consider enticing but potentially compromising allegiances with the private sector. As a new approach to service, public policy studies for all students are advocated, with special encouragement for a new program of civic education for adults. It is proposed that colleges and universities help students and teachers use knowledge wisely so that higher education's dual role as servant and critic of society may be protected and advanced.
