Craig B. Mousin


DePaul University employs thousands of people. As Craig Mousin writes, “To do justice to those we seek to serve necessitates that we do justice to those who engage in our work.” He explores “the centrality of work to life and mission” (including the personal and individual missions employees have for themselves) and what justice in the workplace means. He “examine[s] historical concepts of justice to understand what an advocate of justice works toward in a Vincentian institution.” Mousin also discusses how Vincentian leadership principles and “understandings of justice” should be applied in employment situations, especially when the law might advise action that is expedient or less risky, but not necessarily fair, or when Catholic social teachings conflict with themselves. He considers “specific employment issues through the lens of just how Vincentian justice impacts employment.”
