Sacred Heart University (SHU) has been in Luxembourg since 1991 offering graduate level programs tailored to the needs of the working individual. Sacred Heart University challenges its students to think critically, analyze carefully, evaluate with a sense of justice and proportion, and convey conclusions in an intelligible and articulate fashion. At the heart of the overall mission of the University is its responsibility to share its resources and its special gifts and talents for the betterment of the human community. SHU is an active member of the Luxembourg community and supports a number of initiatives and charity organizations throughout the country.
Guided by the university’s commitment to the betterment of society, a team of the SHU MBA students have joined forces with Special Olympics Luxembourg to organize the First Annual SHU Charity Basketball Game.
Special Olympics Luxembourg is a sportive federation which offers to people who have an intellectual disability the possibility to practice a physical activity and to follow regular training programs. It also provides an opportunity to participate in physical competitions. The ultimate goal of Special Olympics is to help persons with intellectual disabilities participate as productive and respected members of society at large, by offering them a fair opportunity to develop and demonstrate their skills and talents through sports training and competition, and by increasing the public's awareness of their capabilities and needs. The mission of Special Olympics is to provide sports training and athletic competition in a variety of sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities, giving them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of gifts, skills and friendship with their families, other Special Olympics athletes and the community.
