Purpose and Format

Case Competition Winners

The Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium Summit — an event of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program since 2014 — is an immersive and relevant educational experience that promotes and demonstrates the value of principle-based ethics.

The Ethics 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 Ethics 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 of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program schools identifies and invites 12 participants to attend the Ethics 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 have included Ethics in Social Media, The Future of Ethical Leadership, Building an Ethical Culture, and Ethics — the ultimate business advantage.
