D.B. REINHART INSTITUTE FOR ETHICS IN LEADERSHIP AT VITERBO UNIVERSITY AWARDS 2010–11 RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS
LA CROSSE, Wis. – The D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership at Viterbo University has awarded three faculty members with $5,000 research fellowships for the 2010–11 academic year.
Raintry Jean Salk, assistant professor of business, will study the relationship between ethics and sustainability among business and community leaders. Jesús Jambrina, assistant professor of world languages, will study the legacy of Bartolomé de las Casas, a 16th century Spanish conquistador who became a defender of America’s indigenous populations. Grant Smith, professor of English, will study the use of young adult literature to teach environmental ethics and will create lesson plans for teachers in secondary schools.
Recipients of the fellowship are named “Fellows of the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership.” The purpose of the research fellowships is to increase the amount and quality of research conducted at Viterbo University related to ethics in leadership. It is expected that award recipients will produce publishable research that is also relevant to courses taught by the faculty member in existing or proposed programs.
The 2009–10 Fellows are Alissa Oelfke, business, and Larry Harwood, philosophy. Fellowship recipients are determined by a panel selected by Rick Kyte, director of the Reinhart Institute.
