About Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS
The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program was launched in 2010 to advance principle-based ethics education throughout each participating school. The goal is to instill a high standard of ethics in our young people. The ethics initiative promotes principles as a constant foundation for personal and organizational ethical decision-making and leadership. The College of Business at UCCS is one of ten participating business schools and one law school at universities across Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming and is an active member of the Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium.
We seek to strengthen the teaching of principle-based ethics to foster a high standard of ethics in students, and ultimately beyond the campus and into the community. The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS promotes the practical application of ethics-based principles in the curriculum, provides student opportunities to practice ethical leadership and ethical decision-making, and engages the business community all while encompassing the following eight principles.
