Abstract:This festschrift in honour of Revd. Prof. John C. Maviiri has two parts: 1. the growth of the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA) in Kenya under the vice-chancellorship of Prof. Maviiri from 2002 to 2011; and 2. the idea of Catholic universities in Africa. Subjects include: Prof. Maviiri's contribution to the Catholic universities and institutions of higher learning in Africa; realizing the vision of a Learning Resources Centre (LRC) at the CUEA; a paradigm shift in the research culture; integrating a Catholic university into its environment; the Catholic university and church authorities; living the Catholic identity in non-Catholic universities; Catholic universities in Africa in search of purpose and meaning: pedagogical implications; quality research and teaching faithfulness to the magisterium; emerging Catholic universities in Africa; contributions of a Catholic university's quality service to the church and society in Africa; autonomy of an African Catholic university in a globalized context; revolutionized face and quality of the CUEA.
