Chase Thiel, an associate professor of management at the University of Wyoming, recently was named the Daniels Fund Professor of Business Ethics. Thiel is the first recipient of this position through the Daniels Fund.
The Daniels Fund Professorship in Business Ethics is awarded to a faculty member who has demonstrated excellence in scholarly activity that advances the mission of the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UW.
“I am humbled and honored to be the first holder of the Daniels Fund Professorship in Business Ethics,” Thiel says. “The Daniels Fund is an organization with an inspiring mission. The initiatives they support at the University of Wyoming, under the guidance of the Bill Daniels Chair of Business Ethics, have had a tremendous impact on students.”
The Daniels Fund Professor of Business Ethics assists the Bill Daniels Chair of Business Ethics in fulfilling campus obligations to the Daniels Fund. As the Daniels Fund Professor of Business Ethics, Thiel will advance student learning in ethics by teaching courses in the ethics curriculum; advise the UW team in the annual Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Collegiate Program Case Competition; administer the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Faculty Fellows program at UW; and evaluate the impact of the university’s ethics curriculum.
“Thousands of students have been prepared to make ethical decisions and otherwise live with integrity because of Daniels Fund support to the University of Wyoming,” Thiel says. “I am excited about advancing the work of the Daniels Fund through new curricular and extracurricular opportunities for students.”
