Corporate Partners

Corporate partners of the Building Ethical Leaders Using an Integrated Ethics Framework (BELIEF) Program provide funding for special events and activities, including faculty development and guest lectures, as well as funding for a BELIEF director to champion the program.

The sponsorship commitment lasts for three years with the possibility of renewal. Sponsoring organizations are asked to designate an individual to act as the organizational liaison to the BELIEF director and serve on the BELIEF advisory board.
