About

Mission

The Baumhart Center for Social Enterprise and Responsibility promotes social business in the service of a just, humane, and sustainable world. 

History

The Baumhart Center is named for Father Raymond C. Baumhart, S.J., the former president of Loyola University Chicago and one of the country’s leading scholars of business ethics. An anonymous $5 million gift helped launch the center.

Aligned with Loyola’s Plan 2020—which commits the University “to act more for transformative justice”—we support students and leaders seeking to leverage business ideas to build a more just, humane, and sustainable world.

Values

Five values are core to all of our efforts at Baumhart.

Courage
We go to the frontiers of thought, asking critical questions and challenging current ways of doing business.

Collaboration
We embrace interdisciplinary learning and action, leveraging the skills and knowledge of all academic disciplines, community stakeholders, and sectors of our economy.

Diversity
We seek diverse perspectives, knowing that our ideas are stronger when they reflect the racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious, and gender diversity of our world.

Service
We believe in service to others and pro-actively seek opportunities to create social value for the greater good.

Innovation
We are open-minded, embracing any idea that has the power to change the world.
