Student Center for Public Trust Club (StudentCPT)
The StudentCPT at UCCS is part of a national network of college students who demonstrate a commitment to ethical leadership. The UCCS chapter provides all students from all majors with opportunities to participate in training sessions, conferences, community service and business ethics competitions. Our chapter is supported by the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS and the NASBA Center for the Public Trust (CPT), which has staff and resources available to help our chapter maximize its effectiveness. The UCCS StudentCPT board works to create opportunities for students to network with the business community and learn how to use their involvement to enhance marketing themselves in the job market after graduation.
