The Center for Leadership Ethics is committed to fostering research that advances our understanding of ethical issues at multiple levels within or between organizations. A core function of the Center is to develop and disseminate practical and important ethics research through the application of social scientific research methods, emphasizing quantitative data analysis and experimental design. Our goal is to establish the Eller College as a leader in ethics research among our peer institutions and within the community, primarily through publication in top-tier journal outlets.
To reach this goal, the Center offers small grant funding on a yearly basis to help leverage department and college investments in ethics research, particularly as it relates to business.
