  •  Two Business School faculty receive Hackworth Grants

    Wednesday, Jul. 1, 2015 9:22 AM

    Congratulations to professors Hoje Jo and William Sundstrom for receiving Hackworth Grants from the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. 

    Hoje Jo, Gerald and Bonita Wilkinson Professor of Finance, received $2500 for his project “Seeking Legitimacy through CSR: Evidence from Controversial Industries.” This grant will support research into the question of whether and how certain industries, e.g. alcohol, gambling, tobacco, and firearms, use ideas of “corporate social responsibility” to improve their public image and gain legitimacy. Funds will be used for travel and associated expenses with attending a conference where this research will be presented.

    William Sundstrom, professor of economics, received $3600 for his project “Santa Clara Income and Poverty Studies (SCIPS) Initiative.” This project will pay for student assistants who will do background research into data sources, analysis and preliminary construction of a website to act as a “digital clearinghouse” for data related to poverty, income inequality, and economic justice in Silicon Valley.
