GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Colorado Mesa University will be one of three new in-state universities receiving a grant to promote ethics on campus.
The grant is a part of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative.
New to the initiative will be the University of Colorado Denver Business School, the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder and our very own, CMU Department of Business.
Grant money from this fund will be used to strengthen the teaching of ethics beginning in the business department of the university and through the five-year initiative, spreading this learning to other parts of campus and the community.
“One of the areas that we really focus on with our students is, how do you integrate ethics into your professional life? And how do we make sure that we're making ethical decisions,” says Morgan Bridge, Business Department Head at CMU.
$250,000 a year over a five-year period will be awarded to the university.
Students and faculty will reap the benefits of this initiative.
The department head plans on using the funding to send students to ethic based competitions and developing curriculum libraries.
