The Dean Institute for Corporate Governance and Integrity is a national forum that integrates best practices in governance with integrity and faith for, public and private company executives, board members and other top-tier corporate leaders.
The Dean Institute is co-founded by Lipscomb University and Nashville law firm Bone McAllester Norton PLLC.
The institute is funded by an endowment previously established by Hilton and Sallie Dean. Hilton Dean is a retired vice chairman of Ernst & Young, LLP, New York, and is currently chairman of the Lipscomb University Board of Trustees
Unlike other programs on corporate ethics and regulatory issues, Lipscomb’s Dean Institute approaches governance from a faith-based perspective and addresses the root issues at play, namely how character and integrity inform the decisions, actions and culture of corporations.
The institute will examine the guiding principles and factors that inspire honesty and transparency, even when those qualities may have undesirable short-term consequences.
Our mission is to provide thought leadership, networking opportunities and educational programming at a local and national level on the important boardroom issues that lie at the vital point of intersection between doing things right and doing the right things. A natural outgrowth of the university’s commitment to building graduates who not only know their field but who have also been challenged to apply their learning in a way that demonstrates character and ethical decision making.
