Giving to the Institute

The Institute for Ethical Leadership and Social Responsibility is wholly dependent for support through gifts from individuals and foundations. Funds for public events, speaker honoraria, curricular innovation, research initiatives, and communication are essential in order to sustain the Institute’s work. 

Please consider making a contribution to help support ongoing work and new initiatives.


Great literature forces students to confront ethical issues and not look away. These views and versions of behaviors, oftentimes enacted in extreme situations, allow students to see the direct effects of strong moral action or inaction, thereby adopting appropriate models for their own real-life dilemmas."
