The Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility, formerly known as the Southern Institute for Business and Professional Ethics, is one of the nation’s leading centers promoting professional integrity and global corporate responsibility. Founded in 1993 by leaders in business, education and the professions, the center is making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals, institutions and society.

From the university classroom to corporate boardrooms across the nation, our work demonstrates the value of innovative educational services and practical research in addressing the complex ethical challenges facing business, government and professional practice in today’s world.

The Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility was founded as an independent, community-based initiative, supported by leading corporations, professional firms, small businesses and individuals. Today, the center is a unit of the J. Mack Robinson College of Business at Georgia State University.


From executive workshops in corporate offices to business simulations in classrooms, the Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility provides a wide range of innovative educational programs.


The Center for Ethics and Corporate Responsibility provides a variety of services for businesses and other organizations seeking to address ethics more effectively. We provide customized presentations and seminars, many of which are provided on a fee basis.


We strive to be an international center of thought leadership where scholars, professionals and organizations collaborate to advance responsible business practices for the global common good.
