The ethics champions represent two- and four-year colleges from the Southern Colorado Education Consortium and work to expand principled-based ethics education throughout their campus and regional community. Each ethics champion works collaboratively with the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS to share resources and initiatives with educators throughout southern Colorado.

“We are so pleased to be part of this important initiative,” said Dr. Lujan, president of Lamar Community College. “In today’s world it’s critically important to engage students in ethics education. I greatly appreciate Mittie and Pat’s commitment to ensuring this happens in and out of the classroom at LCC.”
