About Us

At the Baumhart Center, we believe in the positive power of business ideas to drive social impact. Aligned with Loyola’s strategic plan – 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. The 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.  Click here‌ to see an overview presentation of the Center.
