51 Catholic (+16 Religious) Institutions Opposing Obama/HHS Mandate

Every single bishop (all 180 who are the head of a diocese) in the United States has publicly condemned the Obama/HHS mandate.

Now I’d like to begin compiling a list of Catholic (and religious) institutions who have said publicly they will fight or oppose the mandate.

A few ground-rules:

  • I’m only going to include institutions that have issued public statements online or a statement to the press which is available online.
  • Please do not email me additions — submit them in the comments instead (I don’t want to be inundated by emails related to this post!). I will be regularly checking the comments for updates.
  • Please triple check that an institution you want to include is not already posted here or in the comments.

Here are Catholic institutions that have spoken out against the mandate:

These institutions signed-on to the Cardinal Newman Society letter:

  • 44. Catholic Distance University in Hamilton, Virginia
  • 45. College of Saint Mary Magdalen in Warner, New Hampshire
  • 46. College of St. Thomas More in Fort Worth, TX
  • 47. DeSales University in Center Valley, Pennsylvania
  • 48. John Paul the Great Catholic University in San Diego, California
  • 49. St. Gregory’s University in Shawnee, Oklahoma
  • 50. University of Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota
  • 51. Society of Catholic Social Scientists

Here are non-Catholic institutions that have spoken out against the mandate:

Also of notable mention: Seven States have filed a lawsuit to overturn the mandate.

It would be helpful if someone could help me determine the number of employees at these institutions (to calculate the potential monetary fine/penalty they would face for not complying with the mandate). Please include this tally in the comments — thanks!
