At one time I would suspect that the local diocese held the deeds to these universities.
Do they still? Could they evict these posers and start a new.
The Bishops do not have the power to remove employees, administrators, or board members of Catholic Universities. But they do have the power to remove the "Catholic" designation from a University. The Bishops will be meeting soon to discuss how they will address Notre Dame's misconduct -- their open defiance of the Bishop's authority. There will probably be some kind of consequence, but at this point, it would be premature of the Bishops to take the nuclear approach of removing the Catholic designation from Notre Dame. The reproach will be more symbolic at this point, but nevertheless, it will be a major historical event. Nothing like that has happened in the history of Catholic Universities in the U.S. So, this is much more serious than the MSM is depicting it. The MSM is downplaying how strongly the Magesterium is responding to Notre Dame's error in judgment.

The do have the power to remove teaching or administering clergy do they not? He can order priest or brothers to resign their post.
Certainly they have the power of excommunication of those defiantly teaching false doctrine.
