Collegiate Program Summit
Purpose and Format
The Summit was introduced in 2014 to provide an immersive and relevant educational experience that promotes and demonstrates the value of principle-based ethics.
The Summit facilitates direct interaction and conversation among participants in a series of keynote presentations, panels, and small group discussions. A primary focus is the engagement of business leaders to extend the Summit’s relevance and value beyond the campus and into the business world.
- Demonstrate that ethics education is critical and central to the creation of long-term value in business and society.
- Increase the involvement of the business community in ethics education.
- Expand awareness and impact of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative.
Each Collegiate Program school identifies and invites twelve participants to attend the Summit as their representatives:
- Four students (undergraduate and graduate)
- Four faculty members
- Four business leaders
This approach strengthens local relationships and ensures all attendees benefit from a wide range of experiences and perspectives.
Topics and host universities change each year. Past topics include Ethics in Social Media, The Future of Ethical Leadership, Building an Ethical Culture, Ethics — The Ultimate Business Advantage, and The Challenges of Ethical Decision Making.
