Center Vision

Vision for the Center – "To help students and other Xavier stakeholders recognize and deal with values-related issues in the workplace." It will:

  • Enable graduate and undergraduate students, and other stakeholders such as the business community, to have increased moral courage to "do the hard right, as opposed to the easy wrong."
  • Support Williams College of Business faculty members increase their exposure and confidence in areas of business ethics and social responsibility.
  • Be a resource for the local regional and national business communities.

The Williams College of Business would like to thank the Cintas Corporation, and the Kohlhepp and Farmer families for their generous support of our business ethics activities. This support will enable the newly renamed Cintas Institute for Business Ethics at Xavier to be known as the preeminent institute for the study and propagation of business ethics. As an initial step, we will further integrate ethics throughout our business curriculum. These ethics related initiatives are consistent with the mission statements of the university, college and the spirit of Jesuit education.
