Brianna Leavitt-Alcántara, a UC assistant professor of history, will present her research on Sunday, Jan. 6, at the annual meeting of the Conference on Latin American History (CLAH), in New Orleans.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, March 12, 2013 1:33 PM

American nuns have given witness to the entrepreneurial spirit for decades, often with obstacles beyond imagination. There are so many ways that the women religious continue to enable and foster the development of entrepreneurship- economic justice, immigration reform, healthcare, peacemaking, ecology, etc. 

 

Our numbers may not be what they once were, but the critical mass of authentic leaders together express their gifts and create life-enriching value. God's power is at work in us all.
