Courageous Voices: Considering a New Perspective

The Catholic University Institute of Buea, Cameroon, graduated its first class in December 2014. CUIB, which calls itself “The Entrepreneurial University,” prepares graduates to be job creators, not just job seekers. Its aim is to train young Cameroonians to be Christian business leaders who will begin their own business in the region, thereby directly addressing – and helping solve – the problems of unemployment and poverty in Cameroon.

Over the next few weeks, we will continue to release short stories about the courageous voices of our member colleges and universities.  Stay tuned to hear about how students, faculty, and staff are responding to Pope Francis’s call to social justice and a culture of encounter.  If you are still curious about how Catholic colleges and universities are promoting social justice on campus, read the original blog post on the Courageous Voices series, or check out ACCU’s inventory of promising practices, which includes many examples of our members engaging with Catholic Social Teaching.
