Universities - empowering teachers, transforming lives

By Lucy Howe López, Deputy Executive Director, Globethics.net

"Why are you doing this?" a law professor asked me.

Then I asked how many she had taught last year, and the year before, in fact how many had she taught during her teaching career.
