Erin Beeghly, Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy, and Paul Rose, Professor of Communication, have been awarded a Daniels Fund Leadership in Ethics Education Award. Dr. Beeghly won for her course BUS 3960, “Topics in Philosophy and Business.” Dr. Rose won the award for his course COMM 3505 "Intro to Media Business Ethics." The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative strives to reinforce the value of ethical business and personal conduct. Bill Daniels, a pioneer in cable television, founded and funded this initiative based on his personal values of business ethics and fairness. The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative principles include: Integrity, Trust, Accountability, Transparency, Fairness, Respect, Rule of Law, and Viability.
The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program was established in 2009 as a five-year pilot, and renewed in 2014 for another five years. The program drives principle-based ethics education throughout each participating school, with the ultimate goal of instilling a high standard of ethics in young people. The partner schools include ten business schools and one law school across Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming. The University of Utah’s David Eccles School of Business is a partner university.
