For Faculty

In an effort to support your incorporation of global issues into your syllabi, CRS offers a robust listing of articles, books and Catholic Social Thought related to issues of international poverty and development. These resources will work well both for classroom use, and potentially for your own research.

For Campus Ministers, Social Justice Staff, and Students

Together we are making a critical difference in the world.

Lets passionately continue our work!
