Rutland Institute for Ethics
The institute was founded in September 2001 through the vision and generosity of Robert J. Rutland. Its mission is to nurture an ethical environment at Clemson University and in the various life communities that Clemson serves. In Mr. Rutland’s words: “The purpose of the Institute for Ethics is to encourage discussion on campus, in businesses and in the community about how ethical decision-making can be the basis of both personal and professional success.”
