Sustainability Speaker Series

The Sustainability Speaker Series brings to campus senior business leaders to interact with students and share their perspectives on the role of business ethics and social responsibility.

These lectures link the academic with the practical. Students learn about real ethical dilemmas and how organizational leaders attempt to create environments with high moral standards, as well as social responsibility and how organizational leaders incorporate such considerations into business decisions.
