The Mandatum for Theologians

As a Catholic student of Catholic theology, once in a while I think about the mandate prescribed for professors by Ex corde ecclesiae.

Do any of my teachers or mentors have one? All of them? None of them?

Is there a way, of which I am ignorant, that I am supposed to know?

Would someone admit to having one? Would I be willing to ask?

I have had one professor (a priest) bring it up, and admit that he had one. A hint: he teaches systematic theology in my department and is not a Jesuit.

For what it's worth, I intend on applying for one when I get a job.
