"In teaching its students about justice, global citizenship, service, and a preferential right for the poor and vulnerable, Gonzaga teaches us how to love and care for one another in an empowering, invigorating, community-building way."

Business Career Foundation Program, Boeing

“I interned at Boeing the summer before my senior year as a project management intern. After my internship I applied and was accepted to the Business Career Foundation Program, which is a leadership development program that focuses on high-potential talent and what they imagine as the next leaders of the company.”

Graduate Teaching Assistant, Eastern Washington University

“On my first day of teaching this quarter, I wanted to try something different. I didn’t foster the kind of connection I wanted with my previous class, and I knew exactly how to change that moving forward: storytelling. We did a miniature storytelling exercise, sharing parts of our lives with one another.”
