When he was a medical student at Northwestern in the 1980s, Joe DiCara was attending classes in one of the wealthiest areas of Chicago, but only a short distance away from one of the poorest, Cabrini Green. Along with other medical students, DiCara could not look the other way when he heard about the violent lifestyles, teenage pregnancies, and school dropout rates of the young people living nearby.   He eventually set up the program now know as The Chicago Youth Programs, which provides tutoring and mentoring to disadvantaged youth as well as recreation and sports activities and access to medical care.

          “Responsible Leadership in Organizations’

Leadership in organizations has been studied in literally thousands of studies, for thousands of years.  Leaders influence people to achieve a vision, but individual leaders' attributes and styles may vary dramatically.  In Loyola’s School of Business Administration, we teach students about Responsible Leadership: being a leader with integrity, respect, and social responsibility.
