Catholic Education in India

In May 2011 undergraduate student Deven Comen conducted interviews in Mumbai, India as part of an ongoing initiative of the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the Center for Social Justice Research, Teaching and Service at Georgetown University. She studied abroad during her junior year in Pune, India, and was excited to return to India in May 2011 to study issues of social justice and education in the rapidly developing country. As a guest of St. Xavier’s College, a Jesuit university in Mumbai, Deven conducted a series of interviews with the school’s students, faculty, and staff to examine the community’s response to issues underlying India’s advancement into the global economy: malnutrition, gender bias, corruption in the public and private spheres, the rural/urban divide, access to credit, religious and cultural divides, and “inclusive growth.”
