Abstract

The author discusses the relationship between ethics and leadership, and discusses how ethics across the curriculum initiatives can help introduce students to this concept. He discusses how at a talk he was giving he met with some resistance to the idea that leadership has an ethical dimension, and discusses the possible reasons behind this resistance, including the role ethics across the curriculum can play in grooming students to be the leaders of tomorrow in business, government, and the professions.
