Dominican University in suburban Chicago has an ALA accredited LIS program.
WASHINGTON — At a gathering of leaders of Roman Catholic colleges here Monday, Sister Diane Kennedy, vice president for mission and ministry at Dominican University, proudly described 17 of Dominican’s students.
Of the 17, several have achieved high academic honors, Kennedy said. And two, so far, have been arrested by immigration officials and spent time in jail.
All 17 students are undocumented immigrants, and the college is spending $274,000 of its own money to help them pay tuition. At a session of the Association of Catholic Colleges and Universities, Kennedy, a former archbishop of Los Angeles, and other Catholic leaders urged other colleges to follow Dominican’s example.
