Dean Institute for Corporate Governance & Integrity

Because here, we believe that working for the greater good moves us all forward.

Founded in 2008 with a gift from a former Ernst & Young LLP vice chairman, the Dean Institute focuses on doing good business. Here, corporate directors and officers have the opportunity to converse and collaborate with each other—through lectures, networking events, and workshops—about employing honesty and fairness in the workplace.

In an era of widespread corporate malfeasance, the Dean Institute proposes a different model of leadership. One where character and ethical decision-making define success. One where faith and compassion count more than the bottom line. One where working for the greater good moves all of us forward.
