On May 4, Santa Clara University and Catholic Relief Services signed a partnership agreement. In this agreement, Santa Clara University committed to integrate international concerns into syllabi across disciples, expose students to the needs of the poor overseas through campus ministry, and to provide access to students, faculty, and administration to global solidarity programs. In turn, CRS will provide internships, service learning and immersion opportunities, consultation services, speakers, programs and materials.

In signing the agreement, Fr. Locatelli, president of Santa Clara University, highlighted the common interests between the two organizations in the solidarity of the one human family and the needs of the poor throughout the world. Signing the agreement for CRS was Ken Hackett, President of CRS. Bishop Patrick McGrath was present and offered the closing prayer congratulating the University and CRS for this new partnership.
