Our Mission

The Elizabeth D. Rockwell Center on Ethics and Leadership (EDR Center) at the Hobby School of Public Affairs supports research and events on ethics and leadership across the fields of business, education, law, and politics. The EDR Center fosters dialogue among people from diverse ideological and demographic perspectives on the meaning of a good life and good society and explores opportunities for making positive social and political change.

Goals of the EDR Center:

  • to increase educational opportunities for students at the University of Houston to learn about ethics and leadership;
  • to support research by University of Houston faculty on ethics and leadership and create connections with scholars nationally and internationally;
  • to enhance opportunities for UH students, faculty, and staff, as well the greater Houston community, to participate in ethics and leadership events featuring locally and nationally prominent figures; and
  • to establish the University of Houston as a nationally-recognized leader in ethics and leadership education and scholarship.
