Welcome! The Winston Center was established in 2006 with the dual mission of conducting compelling research of interest and use to scholars and practitioners and offering programs that engage scholars, executives and students in an intellectual exploration of leadership and ethics in business and society. The Center’s organizational structure reflects its dual mission.
For our research we have an orientation to studying leadership and ethics that is rich and expansive. We draw from a variety of intellectual orientations, such as the humanities, social sciences, and physical sciences to examine the organizational and social contexts, relationships, and dilemmas in which leadership occurs and the role that ethics plays. Our approach is not simply about leaders having the right ethics but about how leaders act in situations that challenge those ethics.
Two flagship speaking forums, the Clough Colloquium and the Chambers Lecture Series highlight our programmatic offerings. David McCullough launched the Clough with an historical perspective on the leadership of the Founders and Colonel Eileen Collins identified the leadership challenges she faced in becoming NASA’s first female commander of the Space Shuttle in a recent Chambers Lecture. We also offer a range of other programs, from symposia to film and lecture series, with the intent of touching many facets of the University community. We’re active in seeking out collaborators from across the university and we are devoting significant resources to enhancing undergraduate student leadership development.
We invite you to explore our web site to learn more about the research and programmatic activities of the Winston Center.
