Officials from 10 colleges in the state will get a lesson in ethics and leadership this weekend when executives from the Denver-based Daniels Fund and international aerospace company Meggitt PLC visit a local university campus.
The event, which will take place Friday and Saturday at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, will mark the expansion of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS to the nine other colleges and universities in attendance, including Pikes Peak Community College and Colorado State University-Pueblo, according to a news release from UCCS.
Barney Rosenberg, Meggitt vice president of ethics and business conduct, and Linda Childears, Daniels Fund president and CEO, along with seven UCCS Ethics Faculty Fellows, will lead sessions and workshops designed to help attendees from colleges as far away as Durango bring the initiative to their own campuses, the release stated.
"Our founder, Bill Daniels, considered his reputation for honesty and integrity to be his most valuable business asset, and he believed in the importance of teaching ethics in colleges and universities," Childears said in the news release. "We are excited about this opportunity to expand principle-based ethics education to reach so many students throughout southern Colorado."
Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative is a university-based ethics resource for students, educators and community members.
"Ethical decision making skills have never been more important in business and throughout society, and we are excited to be a resource and catalyst for this important curriculum," Venkat Reddy, dean of UCCS's College of Business, said in the release.
Registration for the event is closed.
