Management Students Participate in Ethics Project

June 5, 2006

Teams of UTSA College of Business students in a business ethics course taught by Victor Heller, associate professor of marketing, participated in a community service project for the Ecumenical Center for Religion and Health.

The students conducted an educational assessment project to identify the first recipients of the center's San Antonio Ethics in Business Awards. They interviewed 46 for-profit and non-profit business owners as well as individuals who were nominated for the awards. Then, they prepared papers outlining the qualifications of each nominee. The students' papers were given to a selection committee and were used to select the final recipients.

"Ethics is no longer a peripheral concern of corporations, it stands at the very core of every employees' working lives as well as society as a whole," said business student Jennifer Snyder. "This project gave life to the meaning of business ethics for me."

"The ethical practices of a firm are a reflection of the integrity of its leaders," said business student Ashley McDonald.

Of the 300 students participating in the project, nine students were chosen to receive a scholarship from the Ecumenical Center for the exceptional quality of their work. The students were Kenneth Blackwell, Jacqueline Michelle Folacci, Emily Gass, Georgina Martinez, Ashley McDonald, Cesar Rodriguez, Itay Sharoni, Jennifer Snyder and Rikita Urias.
