The local bishop has control over any organization that is "Catholic" in his diocese, whether it's a hospital, school, college, etc. Every priest, including religious, in His diocese MUST report to and obey the local church authority, the bishop.

Unless something has drastically changed since I graduated a Jesuit prep school in the mid-1960s, the Jesuits are exempt from control by local bishops. It might be necessary for them to obtain the approval of the local ordinary and a mandatum to call themselves theologians within his diocese inder Ex Corde Ecclesiae but that is it. I also believe that Opus Dei has similar exemption. Both are "personal prelatures of the papacy."

Thanks for the ping Coleus. I didn't bother to check this thread, and then found, thanks to your ping, that it pertained to Catholic higher education.
Expect to hear from the Newman Society and the ASCC, in short time, on this one.
On the brighter side, perhaps it would be good to know that the Eucharistic Adoration movement on college campuses is now "coming out".
