St. John's Sustainability Conference

Business schools operate in incredibly challenging times. The drivers of business success are changing rapidly, making it essential to prepare students for a world that doesn’t yet exist, but will be dramatically different within the first five years of their graduation. At the same time, the economic fundamentals of business education are being transformed. Shifting demand for business school programs, combined with intense pressures to keep costs in line make each strategic decision potentially perilous. Catholic business school deans have the added pressure of fostering an environment that ensures that students are immersed in the mission of their institutions while navigating these rough waters.

Join business school deans from around the globe to discuss the meaning of mission-driven education at Catholic institutions at the St. John's Global Sustainability Conference on Nov. 10 and 11. Keynote speakers will include UN dignitaries, business school deans, and faculty who conduct research in Catholic social thought, sustainability, and service.

There will also be concurrent sessions where university deans, administrators and academic researchers can present their best practices and research. To showcase and share initiatives at your institution, or if you are working on research that is in any way related to global sustainability and service, consider submitting abstracts or poster proposals for presentation at the Conference.

Please submit your abstract or poster (450 words, maximum) to Submissions received by June 15 will receive priority consideration.
