Professor David Batstone teaches USF's Capstone Course in Ethics, and serves as Co-Professor in the Erasmus Program: a living-learning community that explores, over the course of a school year, what social justice means within the US and in communities around the globe. As a widely published author in both academia and the popular press, Dr. Batstone's five books address ethical issues at the crossroads of politics, business, economy, and spirituality. USA (Today) Weekend describes David Batstone as "one of the country's leading authorities on ethics in the business world."
 
As founder of the Not For Sale anti-human trafficking campaign, Professor Batstone has connected business leaders, heads of community, celebrities, and students, to raise awareness of the 27 million human slaves in the world today. His efforts have inspired thousands of modern day abolitionists to join together in open source activism to save humanity from slavery.
