Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative was created to enhance the teaching of principle-based ethics in the College of Business and to teach students that doing what's right should prevail over self-interest. We are using the support of this five-year grant to broaden and deepen our ethics curriculum and instill in students the ability to recognize and deal with the inevitable ethical dilemmas they will face at work and in their daily lives.
