Alliance for Ethics and Social Responsibility
Given Bentley University’s mission to educate ethical and socially responsible organizational leaders via impactful knowledge within and across business and the arts and sciences, we created the Bentley Alliance for Ethics and Social Responsibility (BAESR) in 2003. The role of the BAESR is to amplify and extend the work of the autonomous centers and initiatives on campus, supporting and encouraging greater awareness of, respect for, and commitment to ethics, service, social responsibility and sustainability in our research, curricula and campus culture. W. Michael Hoffman Center for Business Ethics is proud to be a partner in the Alliance.
