Overview

In January 2010, the New Mexico State University College of Business was awarded $1.25 million over the next five years to develop a principle-based ethics program. The grant is part of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative, whose goal is to strengthen principle-based ethics education and to foster a high standard of ethics in young people.

“Ethics has always been important in business as well as in society in general,” said Garrey Carruthers, NMSU President and former dean of NMSU’s College of Business. “Unfortunately, there is a growing concern in the public that not enough is being done to educate people, and in particular young people, about ethics. Events over the past few years, from Enron to Bernie Madoff, have resulted in the business community being indicted by the public as being unethical. That’s why our goal is to develop new and innovative ways to teach ethics and to extend ethics training beyond the NMSU campus.”

Vision Statement

All business students, through excellent academic preparation and commitment to the highest ethical principles, shall graduate prepared to compete successfully in a global economy.
