About the Business Ethics Center at Grand Valley State University

The Business Ethics Center (BEC) at Grand Valley State University provides West Michigan businesses – as well as students, faculty, and staff – with a forum for dialogue about business ethics and issues with ethical implications. The BEC promotes discussion and analysis through lectures, business roundtables, seminars and workshops, events, and forums.

BEC seminars and workshops. The Center director regularly conducts seminars and workshops for businesses in the areas of business ethics, values clarification, multi-generational understanding and conflict-resolution.

Business Roundtables. Local business people, professionals, faculty, and students meet throughout the year to discuss issues of universal and local concern.

BEC Forum. The BEC conducts ongoing small group meetings focused on specific ethical issues as selected by members.

Business ethics lecture. The BEC brings a major figure in business, journalism, or academia to Grand Rapids each year to deliver a public lecture about a topic or issue relevant to business ethics.

Research. The Center director and other affiliated individuals study issues relevant to ethics in business and share their information and research at national and international conferences and with BEC members.
