  • Participation in bi-monthly team meetings and Ethics Institute events as their schedule allows
  • Commitment is five hours per week

  • Fellows will have hands-on mentoring from ethical and servant leaders;
  • Fellows will be members of the Reinhart Institute Advisory Council (which meets quarterly);
  • Fellows will have the opportunity to meet and interact with local, regional, and national leaders in the fields of ethics and leadership.
