UCCS College of Business Ethics Initiative Grants

The UCCS COB Ethics Initiative provides funds to College of Business faculty, students, and staff for curriculum development, student engagement, professional development, and research.

These grants are for projects in addition to those funded and organized by the UCCS COB Ethics Initiative office. These projects include the following: We will consult with faculty on course improvements. Our plan is to seek corporate sponsors for a speaker series. We will also fund and organize faculty development workshops at UCCS and will encourage participation of the faculty. Please submit ideas or requests for specific course development, speakers and workshops directly to Tracy Gonzalez-Padron.

Proposals may be submitted at any time. UCCS-Ethics Initiative will review submissions on a quarterly basis. After a grant is provided and the project completed, a report must be submitted to the UCCS Ethics Initiative.
