In remembrance of Prof. Franco Anelli


On behalf of all members of the Strategic Alliance of Catholic Research Universities (SACRU) I would like to acknowledge how saddened we were by the recent death of our dear friend and colleague, Professor Franco Anelli, the Rector of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore.

Franco was a highly esteemed legal academic and leader in Catholic higher education. As the Rector of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore, he was critical to the establishment and success of SACRU. We will miss his insight, his vision, his intellect and his humour.

Our prayers and our thoughts are with his family, his friends and all of his colleagues at Sacro Cuore.


Professor Zlatko Skrbis
