Supposedly Catholic Cardinal Stritch University Offers “Domestic Partner” Health Benefits
Health Insurance*Clearly, if you are merely rooming with somebody, you are not their “domestic partner.” You have to be having sex. And if you aren’t married to them, the relationship is illicit under Catholic teaching.
Full-time employees, their spouses, dependents and/or domestic partners are eligible to participate in the University’s Group Medical Benefits program. This is a self-funded plan administered by Wausau Benefits. This plan provides medical, hospital, surgical and certain other benefits, including limited vision care and mental/nervous and drug/alcohol care benefits. The University and the employee share the cost of the coverage.
Full- and part-time employees, spouses, dependents and domestic partners can attend graduate or undergraduate classes at Stritch at reduced rates. Tuition reduction is available up to 100% minus any gift aid awarded by the Financial Aid Office.
It’s always a question with institutions billing themselves as “Catholic.” Are they really Catholic? Parents who want a “Catholic education” for their kids need to ask questions -- a lot of questions -- before they pack them off to any institution that claims to be “Catholic.”
