The Koeze Business Ethics Initiative has as its mission to examine the role and influence of business in public life, to promote inquiry into ethical business practices and education, and to be a leading resource for business professionals, students, faculty, and administrators who seek to understand the relationship between business, the common good, and a life well-lived.

Upcoming Events

In June the KBEI will be represented at the Neuroethics Network International Conference at the Brian and Spine Institute, part of the neuroscience research foundation located within the Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital complex in Paris, France’s largest hospital.

We will be giving a presentation titled “Revolution and Evolution — From Philosophy to Neuroethics in the Curriculum.” 

Please refer back to this site soon for more information about KBEI and partner events this fall, including a debate in September on “Trump and the Constitution” to be held at the Gerald R. Ford Museum.
