The vision of the Elfenworks Center for Responsible Business is simple but paramount: inspire business performance that advances a more just and sustainble world.
There are three ways we work to do that here at Saint Mary's.
- RESEARCH: Develop thought leaders in the role of business solutions to problems of poverty, injustice, corporate governance and environmental degradation.
- OUTREACH: Offer compelling events and programs that promote collaboration, shared inquiry and innovation in pursuit of responsible business performance.
- ENGAGEMENT: Provide oppotunities for business students to build business acumen, inspire social responsibility and community engagement and extend networks.
