The code of canon law on the improper alienation of church property should be invoked and proceedings should begin for the return of church property to authentic Catholic educational authorities. It should be illegal for a secular cabal to STEAL a Roman Catholic college. That's big chunk of real estate and some change there.
For a universtiy to call itself "Catholic" it must have the local bishop's permission. I do not know of any Catholic or "Catholic" colleges or universities which are run by a diocese.
I am involved with starting a new Catholic university here in San Diego. The first thing we had to do was to get approval from our bishop to use the word "Catholic."

It's not a question of being "run by the diocese." It has to do with the transfer of church property to a non-Catholic secular entity and whether that has followed proper canonical laws for the alienation of church property. As in:
"The university also claims that the sale is not subject to canon law, which requires Vatican approval for the sale of any Catholic property valued at over $3 million." http://www.catholic.net/rcc/Periodicals/OSV/98nov9.html
