Glennon Symposium

The University of Dayton School of Business Administration will host a free public lecture by distinguished business ethics scholar Kenneth Goodpaster at 5 p.m. Friday, April 7, in the Kennedy Union ballroom.

Goodpaster is the first scholar to visit campus as part of the new Glennon Symposium. The seminar complements the annual Business as a Calling Symposium, which brings a business executive to campus each fall and has become a hallmark of the School’s commitment to leadership with integrity over the last 14 years.

“Our hope is these sessions and discussions will foster a view that sees business as a calling to serve our fellow humans and preserve our planet,” said Victor M. Forlani, S.M., Marianist-in-Residence for the business school and founding director of the University’s Center for the Integration of Faith and Work.

Goodpaster was named one of the 100 Most Influential People in Business Ethics by Ethisphere Magazine and won the Outstanding Career of Scholarship Achievement in Business Ethics award from the Society for Business Ethics in 2014. He retired as a professor from the University of St. Thomas after 25 years, and previously taught at the Harvard Business School and University of Notre Dame. His recent book, Conscience and Corporate Culture, made a significant contribution to discussions on organizational effectiveness, Forlani said.

As part of the symposium, Goodpaster will also meet with undergraduate and MBA students, as well as business leaders, for on-campus discussions.

Tickets are not required for his public talk, which is titled “Ethics and Corporate Citizenship — Alive in the Workplace.” Free parking is available in Lot C.
