St. Gregory's University strenghens ties with church in Oklahoma

St. Gregory's University, the oldest higher education institution in the state of Oklahoma and the only Catholic university in Oklahoma, will become the only Catholic university in the nation with shared institutional ownership between a religious order (Benedictine) and diocesan hierarchy (the Archdiocese of Oklahoma City and the Diocese of Tulsa).” Archbishop Coakley said. “It’s my hope that this new form of governance will allow the university to play an even more central role in advancing the church’s mission of Catholic education in our state.”

This is great news for the university, the church in Oklahoma, and the state.  In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I am Vice Chair of the University's Board.
