Commitment by

St. Edward's University

In 2009, St. Edwards University committed to establishing a faculty-led program through The Global Business and Social Justice Institute that creates opportunities for understanding global business. During the 2008-2009 school year St. Edwards University will send faculty and students to Casa Luz, a nonprofit organization in Costa Rica that provides services to young mothers in Costa Rica who come from extreme poverty, abuse, and exploitation. St. Edwards University will encourage students to apply the skills learned at The Global Business and Social Justice Institute to Casa Luz by formulating a sustainable business plan for the organization. St. Edwards University will expose its students to global understanding and awareness as well as provide Casa Luz a valuable strategy for its own growth.
