Wonderful things happen when a strong business ethic comes together with a true sense of caring.  These words can describe the extremely successful career of Dr. Carolyn Y.

Catholic Relief Services (CRS) is the official international humanitarian agency of the Catholic community in the United States.  CRS was founded in 1943 and currently has over 5,000 people working in 100 countries, reaching more than 130 million of the world's poorest people each year with innovative solutions to tough problems like poverty, hunger, drought, disease, and emergencies.

 

 Dr. Woo has strong Michiana ties, having served for over 14 years at Dean of the University of Notre Dame's Mendoza College of Business, the nation's leading business school in ethics education and research.

 

A unique combination of academic excellence and in-depth involvement in numerous community activities gives Dr. Woo a special ability to discuss career success.  Born and raised in Hong Kong, Dr. Woo immigrated to the United States to attend Purdue University where she received her B.S., M.S.I.A., and Ph.D. degrees.
