  • Advisory Committee

    Founding support for the Institute for Business in Society was provided by biotechnology pioneer Amgen, leading security company Northrop Grumman Corporation and global packaging company WestRock. As a Center of Excellence at Darden, the Institute for Business in Society explores issues that affect the dynamics among business, government and society.

    Amgen, Northrop Grumman and WestRock executives, as well as additional anonymous founding supporters, serve on the institute's Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee, along with Dean Beardsley and Darden’s faculty, helps identify activities around the most pressing issues for business in society and advance knowledge to shape business practices.
