Catolic-Social-Teaching-iconCALL FOR PAPERS -Prosperity, Poverty and the Purpose of Business Rediscovering Integral Human Development in the Catholic Social Tradition

It has been said that the character of a people is found in the way that it treats its poor and marginalized. So what is the character of Catholic higher education? Pope Francis speaks of wanting “a Church which is poor and for the poor. They have much to teach us” (Evangelii Gaudium, 198). What does this mean for Catholic colleges and universities and in particular their business programs? What kind of curriculum can serve to contribute to extending prosperity for greater numbers of people as well as creating meaningful workplaces that can mitigate the moral and spiritual poverty that can animate corporate life? What are the pressing research questions that have a significant impact on the material and spiritual poor of our world, especially as these relate to business?
