Dartmouth’s Tuck School Launches New Center for Business & Society

At the start of this month, the Tuck School of Business transformed its Allwin Initiative for Corporate Citizenship into a new Center for Business & Society, Tuck Dean Paul Danos announced last week.

The new center extends the efforts of the Allwin Initiative, created with a named gift by James Allwin T’76 in February 2002. The center has been designed to prepare Tuck students for leadership in an increasingly complex, interconnected world.

“The goal of this center is to ensure that every Tuck student will graduate with a deep, intellectual understanding of the role of business in society, a strong appreciation for principled, ethical behavior and a keen desire to work for a better world,” Danos said in a statement.

The new center will bring together alumni and business leaders to serve as resources to students who are investigating best practices and current thinking on topics including corporate social responsibility, environmental sustainability, social entrepreneurship and community involvement.

Continuing the Allwin tradition of offering students both classroom and experiential learning opportunities, the center will host speakers, develop projects for academic credit, give students opportunities to make an impact locally and globally, offer financial support for internships and jobs in the nonprofit and public sectors, support new cases and courses, host executive programs and enable faculty research.

“We gratefully acknowledge the support of the Allwin Family who has enabled this transition,” Danos added.

Senior Associate Dean Robert Hansen will serve as faculty director of the new center, and Professors John Vogel and Rick Shreve will serve as associate faculty directors.
