Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative

Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative was established to advance and promote the teaching of principle-based ethics in the University Business curriculum. Created in Bill Daniels' legacy, the Initiative seeks to foster a high standard of ethics and integrity in students, and to extend this reach past the campus and into the community. The Monfort College of Business makes ethics a top priority in its Business program, and is proud to be one of eleven regional schools that partner in the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative.

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative encompasses the following eight principles:


Act with honesty in all situations


Build trust in all stakeholder relationships


Accept responsibility for all decisions


Maintain open and truthful communications


Engage in fair competition and create equitable and just relationships


Honor the rights, freedoms, views, and property of others

Rule of Law

Comply with the spirit and intent of laws and regulations


Create long-term value for all relevant stakeholders
