Building Institutions for the Common Good: The Purpose and Practice of Business in an Inclusive Economy

10th International Conference on Catholic Social Thought and Business Education
6th Colloquium on Christian Humanism in Business and Society
University of St. Thomas, St. Paul - Minneapolis, Minnesota
June 21-23, 2018

This conference welcomes participants from multiple disciplines and perspectives ready to engage in a constructive dialogue on the common good and how a growing number of people can participate in the market economy and finance in an equitable, stable, and sustainable way. We take the common good within the Catholic social tradition as our starting point in this discussion.

Papers will be accepted for three tracks:

  1. broad, organizational and theoretical treatments of the common good;
  2. the common good in relation to individual disciplines (marketing, personnel management, strategy, etc.); and
  3. curriculum design, materials, and pedagogical approaches for addressing the common good in a business context.

Please send a one- to two-page single-spaced proposal which includes the following: thesis/purpose, outline of paper as well as a one paragraph biography that includes institutional position and affiliation, recent publications, research interest, practical experience. Send proposals by November 1, 2017 to: Fr. Martin Schlag at
