Center for Leadership Ethics

Where ethics, leadership, business and the future intersect.

Center for Leadership Ethics


The Center for Leadership Ethics brings scholars with diverse backgrounds together to explore, challenge, and advance the field of ethical leadership.

Through cutting-edge research, education, and outreach, we work every day to promote the development of ethical leaders who foster ethical cultures in organizations around the world.


Featured Program: High School Ethics Forum

The ability to analyze and challenge ethical reasoning is one of the most valuable skills students can learn. The Center for Leadership Ethics’ annual High School Ethics Forum provides an opportunity to do just that. In a unique, hands-on environment, students are challenged to explore personal and professional ethical dilemmas using a variety of ethical decision making models. Through this process, students learn to develop ethical solutions collaboratively—providing valuable networking opportunities and building a foundation for success as a business professional.
