Dr. Bohdan Celewycz and his wife, Joanne, are not just donors but the hosts of a UCEF event and also volunteers.
In addition to making financial contributions to the UCEF to benefit the Ukrainian Catholic University, the Celewyczes hosted an event at which representatives of local Catholic universities met with Fr. Borys Gudziak, PhD, rector of UCU, the evening of November 14, 2010. And the Celewyczes have even helped out at the UCEF office!
Presidents, professors, and department heads came to the event from universities including Notre Dame, Loyola, Dominican, Benedictine, Lewis and Quincy, and Calumet College of St. Joseph. They assembled on the top floor of The Clare at Water Tower, Chicago, the senior apartment complex where the Celewyczes live, to meet Fr. Gudziak and learn about UCU.
As a result, Loyola and Dominican will be taking delegations to visit UCU, and many of the universities talked about the possibility of an exchange of professors and students.
