What is Integral Economic Development?

Integral economic development is an approach that seeks to strengthen the civil and social institutions required for sustainable development, one that takes an integrated view of the person's role in society. It is an approach which development entities increasingly demand. Integral economic development, seen from the perspective of the whole human person, and the whole human community, is at the core of our programs and the mission of The Catholic University of America.
