The James T. Pursell, Sr. Eminent Scholars Program generates earnings to support a Distinguished Fellows in Ethics Speakers Program. These individuals have distinguished themselves by their ethical conduct related to the management of an organization. By inviting them to the Auburn University campus, they expose undergraduate and graduate students to ethical incidents they personally engaged in and provide students with a vicarious experience that can be used in assisting our students in making ethical decisions.
