Who We Are

The Benefit Corporation Gateway was created by the Institute for Business & Professional Ethics (IBPE). The Institute was established as a joint effort of the Colleges of Liberal Arts & Sciences, and Commerce at DePaul University. The purpose of the IBPE is to encourage ethical deliberation in decision-makers by stirring their moral conscience, encouraging moral imagination, and stimulating research into business innovation and practices. We serve as a forum for exploring and fostering ethical practices in Chicago area business organizations at DePaul with programs for our students, faculty and the business community.
