The Center for Ethical Leadership builds on the mission of the College of Mount St. Joseph as a Catholic academic community that educates students with an interdisciplinary liberal arts and professional curricula emphasizing values, integrity and social responsibility.

What is Ethical Leadership?

Ethical Leadership calls on us to think beyond ourselves and become involved as leaders and decision-makers in our professions, families and communities. It is an intentional, living manifestation of the Mount’s culture of respect for others and the value for the common good to make a positive influence on society.

Why Ethical Leadership?

The Mount’s Center for Ethical Leadership encourages students to develop the skills, abilities and characteristics that employers are looking for in the leaders of tomorrow. Candidates with personal integrity who communicate effectively, think critically and solve complex problems stand out in the world of work.

Why at the Mount?

Since founding the College of Mount St. Joseph in the 1920s, the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati have modeled for students the value of service and responsible engagement in the community. Through their practice of ethical leadership, the Sisters have guided students to be champions of justice, to be loving and caring in their relationships, and to seek ways to liberate the oppressed.
