Olsson Center for Applied Ethics

Ethics and Values in Student Life

The Olsson Center supports both graduate and undergraduate student clubs at the University of Virginia.  

At the Darden School, the Net Impact club inspires, educates and equips individuals to use the power of business to create a more socially and environmentally sustainable world. Members are committed to the belief that business has a responsibility to all those who are impacted by their decisions. Topics of interest include sustainability, corporate citizenship, international development, mission-driven careers and social entrepreneurship.

At the McIntire School of Commerce, the Business Ethics Society (BES) promotes critical study, discussion and analysis of applied business ethics and corporate social responsibility. Students are provided a forum to interact amongst professors and business leaders through open evaluation and discussion of relevant ethical, philosophical and legal concerns of the past and present.


Over the years, the Olsson Center has supported various student initiatives and conferences, such the BES Speaker Series, BES Case Competition and the Business in Society Conference.
