The Forum for Ethics in the Workplace is a partnership institution of the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture at DeSales University on January 1, 2006. The Salesian Center for Faith and Culture was established in 2000 to promote the interaction of faith and culture, in a mutually beneficial engagement, through academic initiatives that focus on the authentic integration of social concerns and gospel values.
By its collaboration with the Forum, the Salesian Center is able to extend its mission of social engagement into the corporate world and is able to capitalize on the working relationships that the Forum has already established in the business community. The Salesian Center supports intellectual activity in research studies, dialogue events including public forums and lectures and partnership programs.
