Salt & Light

A smooth, comfortable life is a blessing. And a business education certainly can pave the way for such a life.

But to live as Christ commands — to be a light in a dark world — and to live out the mission of the Mendoza College of Business — to be faithful to the ideals of community, human development and individual integrity — often means rejecting comfort, eschewing stability and avoiding the well-trodden path.

This installation of the Salt & Light series presents stories of Mendoza alumni who have chosen to respond to unexpected, even difficult situations with compassion, patience, courage and love. They humbly, wholeheartedly and gratefully answer a higher calling. And they are transformed in the process.

What’s more, many of these alumni have found ways to incorporate the business tools, skills and life lessons they received during their time at Mendoza. There is no greater tribute to our College or our way of business education than their faithful actions.

The Salt & Light series previously featured faculty, staff and students who live out Christ’s charge to
make a difference in the world.

You are the salt of the earth ... You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid ... so let your light shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

—Matthew 5:13-16
