Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium Summit

Purpose and Format

Case Competition WinnersThe pilot Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium Summit was held October 23–24, 2014 at the University of Denver and Grand Hyatt Denver

The Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium Summit — a component of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program — is designed to be an immersive and relevant educational experience that promotes and demonstrates the value of principle-based ethics.

The Ethics Summit facilitates direct interaction and conversation among participants in a series of keynote presentations, panels, and small group discussions. A primary focus is the engagement of business leaders to extend the Ethics Summit's relevance and value beyond the campus and into the business world.


The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Principles will be integrated into all program components.


In the pilot event, approximately 100 attendees from the ten member schools in the Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium participated.

To ensure local relationships are strengthened and all attendees benefit from a range of experiences and perspectives, each university is represented by up to 12 participants:


“The Future of Ethical Leadership” is the topic for 2015. The topic of the 2014 Ethics Consortium Summit was “Ethics in Social Media.” Topics and host universities will change each year.
