Ethics Awards

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at the University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business is sponsoring and conducting an award program to acknowledge faculty and/or staff for their significant contributions to ethics education. The awards are given to all faculty (regular/auxiliary) and/or staff members who significantly enhance the teaching of ethics in their classes and/or engage with student organizations to foster the involvement of students in ethical issues. In each case, the award recognizes the incremental contribution to ethics education both inside and outside of the classroom.
