Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative

Collegiate Program Overview

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program was established by the Daniels Fund Board of Directors in 2009 as a five-year pilot. The effort was officially launched in early 2010 with eight business schools at universities in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming as initial partners. Due to its success during the pilot phase, the Collegiate Program was renewed in 2014 for an additional five years (2015–2019), and the number of partners was expanded to include ten business schools and one law school.

The Collegiate Program drives the strengthening of principle-based ethics education throughout each participating school. The ultimate goal is to instill a high standard of ethics in our young people.
