The Northern Arizona University Institute for Public and Professional Ethics in Leadership was established by the Arizona Board of Regents on February 10, 2022. The institute was made possible by a generous gift from Dr. Richard Morrison. Dr. Morrison is an alum of Northern Arizona University and is a retired attorney, priest, businessman, civic leader, and philanthropist. His deep belief in young people and his passion for improving our society led him to fund the establishment of this Institute.
The institute is an interdisciplinary program focusing on ethics education, application, and dissemination. Please look around our web pages and contact us with questions.
Our Mission: The Northern Arizona University Institute for Public and Professional Ethics in Leadership promotes leadership ethics and ethics decision-making among and across NAU’s many academic disciplines. The Institute promotes civil discourse about ethics and leadership through academic research, an interdisciplinary curriculum, co-curricular programs, and community engagement.
Our Vision: The Northern Arizona University Institute for Public and Professional Ethics in Leadership will be a comprehensive resource for leadership ethics and ethical decision-making in Northern Arizona and the Southwest Region.
