YOUR headline "Church's role as 'bridge' in life of university" above a report (Feb. 6) of my recent talk to the London Newman Circle is too far from the tenour of what I said to go uncorrected.
I certainly see the alienation and frustration in British university life largely as the product of the divisiveness in our society and within the universities themselves. But the Church's task is not to be a bridge, as though to leave the divisions intact. but a movement for change. This means changing the structures—social, economic and administrative— which dehumanise tertiary education.
