St. Thomas Aquinas College is a Business Development University Partner for Spes Nova. STAC students sell fair-trade goods through their STAC New-Hope Movement, organized by Dr. Deidre Noel-Engels and Rossen Trendafilov.
The goal of the STAC New Hope Movement is twofold:
To give artisans from economically disadvantaged areas a foothold to a global audience
To give STAC students a collaborative academic experience by building a startup business which implements fair trade principles
