Description

A central value of the Gilliam Center for Free Enterprise is educating students on the liberties and principles outlined in the Founding documents (Constitution and the Bill of Rights) where the principles of the American Founders continue to undergird a free society. The mission of the Center is to foster, develop and assist current and future business leaders in creating and improving ethical, effective, and sustainable organizational cultures and decision-making climates through curriculum development, knowledge accumulation and dissemination activities, and provision of resources.
