CUA returning to single-sex dorms
Catholic University of America President John Garvey made national news when he announced that the University would be returning to single-sex dorms. In a letter to the Wall Street Journal, Garvey wrote:
Next year all freshmen at The Catholic University of America will be assigned to single-sex residence halls. The year after, we will extend the change to the sophomore halls. It will take a few years to complete the transformation.
The change will probably cost more money. There are a few architectural adjustments. We won’t be able to let the ratio of men and women we admit into the freshman class vary from year to year with the size and quality of the pools. But our students will be better off.
Do you agree with Mr. Garvey, or is it a step backwards?
