The Erb Institute is committed to both social and environmental sustainability and its dual-degree program provides students with the resources and tools to drive business sustainability impact within companies, but also field opportunities that offer meaningful engagement. 

Earlier this year, Erb Institute student, Chris Owen, MBA/MS 2020, worked with Casa María Amor in Cuenca, Ecuador via an Erb Institute Impact Project. This video features such a project. Casa María Amor is a women’s shelter on the outskirts of Cuenca in the Andes Mountains.  Chris conceived, developed and launched an Erb Impact project to help the women of Casa María Amor develop skills aimed at achieving economic independence after leaving abusive relationships.
