O'Pake Institute for Ethics, Leadership, and Public Service

Ethics and Leadership Education

In part, the mission of Alvernia University is to foster “ethical leaders with moral courage.” Alvernia believes that leadership and ethics can be taught and can be learned. The O’Pake Institute is charged with supporting this effort in the curriculum, through co-curricular activities and in the broader community. Our efforts in public service and community engagement are available here.

The O’Pake Institute sponsors an annual campus workshop on ethics and leadership education, bringing outside experts to campus and having campus leaders in these efforts describe their work. These workshops have enhanced education programs on campus and inspired innovation and creativity. 

The O’Pake Institute is actively involved in launching Alvernia’s Leadership Department drawing together all of the University’s graduate education programs in Leadership into a single department with a common core curriculum.

The Institute is also actively supporting efforts to create undergraduate academic programs in leadership (Undergraduate Leadership Education Strategy).

Bringing together a group of faculty and staff, the Institute has begun the work of identifying the core values of leadership education at Alvernia. (Attributes of Leadership Education at Alvernia University)
