A community of learners developing a balance between selflessness and selfishness is key characteristic of this Cor. Brother Marcel Sylvester, a Walsh faculty member, chairman of the board, and administrator with the Brothers of Christian Instruction serves an inspiration for this Cor.  Brother Macel dedicated a lifetime of service, working for peace and justice, especially with the poor.  In his retirement he served as the Director of Agencies for Development Assistance providing financial assistance to non-profits in 139 countries.  Jointly, this Cor is inspired by St. Katharine Drexel, an American religious sister, born into immense wealth who dedicated herself to the poor, especially to Native Americans and African Americans.  St. Katherine showed courage in addressing social inequality, especially among minorities by using her inheritance address injustice and providing quality education.
