Ottawa University’s Business School Receives $500,000 for Ethics Professorship


The Angell Snyder School of Business at Ottawa University, a private, Christian college in Kansas, has received a $500,000 grant to fund a new professorship in ethics.

The professorship is funded by the Menard family, owners of the Menards chain of home improvement stores.

The institutional home of the new Menard Family Professor of Philosophy & Ethics will be in the school’s Gwartney Institute, the mission of which is to “create a unique scholarly environment for the examination and study of economic freedom and social justice and their role in the advancement of human flourishing” and to produce graduates who “incorporate economic understanding with their faith in their careers, vocations, communities, and personal lives.”

Ottawa University’s Justin Clarke, currently assistant professor of philosophy, has been named as the first holder of the professorship.
