Welcome to the UHD Institute for Business, Ethics and Public Issues (IBEPI), where we are dedicated to promoting ethical business practices and research that focuses on current and emerging issues, and serving as a forum for the exchange of business information and strategies.

To accomplish our mission, we actively cultivate relationships with local business and industry partners that will support ethical awareness through seminars, workshops and guest speakers.

In addition, we strive to provide our students with an understanding of:

  • the difference between ethics and the law;

  • the interrelationship of ethics and social responsibility; and

  • the role of corporate governance and corporate culture in ethical decision making.

Whether you are browsing this site or actively seeking information on business ethics, we hope you will join in efforts to raise public awareness of the importance of business ethics.


Dr. Carolyn Ashe, Director
