USF President Stephen A. Privett, S.J., travelled with other Catholic university presidents to Rwanda and Burundi in January prior to the launch of a new initiative led by Catholic Relief Services (CRS), the official international relief and development agency of the Catholic Church in the U.S. The program, Scholars in Global Solidarity, is a pilot that aims to cultivate faculty expertise on international social justice issues, create curriculum focusing on social justice as part of college courses, and develop social justice-related research.
