Look up Father Ted Hesburgh (sp?) and the Land o' Lakes Statement, and you'll have your answer.

So our educational institutions as well as our health care system have been hijacked by the secularists
The Bishops,leaders of religious have been asleep at the wheel.

He is also an alumni of Georgetown and so are the others who signed his petition. I believe being a Catholic alum of Georgetown gives him some standing to criticize the direction of the university. Especially, as all alumni know, universities deluge you with requests of monetary support.

In general, powerful alumni and boosters wield quite a bit of influence in the academic world. This isn't unusual really.

Somewhat off topic-- when I lived in DC in the 90s I used to attend daily Mass at the Georgetown chapel. During the consecration all in attendance were invited to stand around the altar. Thought that was somewhat of an abuse. It was actually surreal. You would have like 10 people standing by the altar and nobody sitting in the pews
