Unit rationale, description and aim

The Enhancing Catholic Schools Identity (ECSI) Project is deployed throughout Victorian Catholic dioceses as a tool for enhancing Catholic identity in schools within an increasingly secular and pluralist environment. It provides a theoretical framework and language that assists staff, students and school communities in clarifying their Catholic identity and beliefs, ascertaining the Catholicity of their school and confirming their future direction and practices. Embedded in Victorian Catholic schools, it is also being adopted by a number of other dioceses across Australia, and extended into parishes. In this unit, participants will examine critically the theological foundations, theoretical tools, practical applications, and implications of ECSI, in order to enhance their engagement with it.
