“I give to the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics to ensure it continues to provide a path towards trust, tolerance, empathy, and moral values. In the 1970’s I was fortunate to have Professor Dennis Moberg as an instructor for evening SCU classes. Professor Moberg provided a unique case study of how major business decisions that also consider world health, can benefit humanity. Understanding the long term needs of the Markkula Center also inspired me to establish an endowment fund for the Center in my estate plan. This fund will help the Ethics Center continue its great education for future generations and provide students with educational experiences that will help them work and live as ethical persons.”

- Gary Connor, MBA '79

“I became involved in the Ethics Center rather easily because two of the major challenges facing students of today are maintaining ethical behavior and not losing their moral compass when deciding environmental issues.”

- Mary Catherine Ganahl

"I believe that the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics deserves its honored reputation. It embodies that essential Jesuit concept of being 'of the world'. These difficult times call for a proactive ethical voice, a dedicated morality broker. There are many reasons, as you know, but the onset of unbridled technology ... poses a threat to our essential moral compass".

- Markkula donor
