Led by Associate Professor of Philosophy and Director of the Prindle Institute for Ethics Jeffrey Dunn, this project will bring together faculty and students from a broad range of departments to develop new courses and potentially create a new minor or certificate. This work is scheduled to begin in the summer. 

The official statement shares that this project will contribute to DePauw’s goal to develop student leaders who will “engage the most pressing global challenges of our time.” Moreover, through this project, the university hopes to “remain a national innovator in business and leadership education,” according to the statement.
