Inspiring new dimensions in decision making through professional responsibility

 Welcome back to campus!

The Center for Professional Responsibility in Business and Society leads the discussion about society’s expectations for a professional’s responsibility at both the individual and organizational level. It promotes the development of responsible professional behavior in today’s students, enabling them to become effective leaders in constantly changing and challenging business environments.

The Center strives to inspire new dimensions in organizational decision making through the conceptual development, research and practical application of professional responsibility through the creation, delivery, and sharing of academic research and educational materials.

In fulfilling its mission, the Center works cooperatively with multiple audiences including university faculty, students, and staff; professional and academic organizations; corporations; and governmental and non-governmental agencies.

Future opportunities to get involved!

The College will be participating in a business ethics case competition at the University of Arizona October 29-31, 2015. See

Professor Michael Fricke will be selecting and coaching the team, and we are looking for two students to represent the U of I at the competition. Our Center for Professional Responsibility in Business and Society will subsidize part of the cost of the competition, so the cost to students will be reasonable and minimal.

If you’re interested and your October schedule has the capacity to accommodate the added responsibility, please contact Professor Fricke at by September 4 for additional information.
