University Research

The Ukleja Center for Ethical Leadership seeks to be a contributor to research on ethical leadership in the academic and practitioner arenas. We place priority on research areas that are aligned with the capabilities and interests of CSULB faculty.

Each fall, faculty are invited to attend an information session to discuss ways to enhance the teaching of ethics at CSULB. Faculty can also learn about our pedagogical and research stipend application process at the online event.

Faculty Ethics Research Stipends

In 2014, the Ukleja Center began offering $5,000 grants to support faculty ethics research and contributions to the body of knowledge in disciplinary and interdisciplinary ethics. CSULB faculty members are invited to apply for research stipends each spring and proposals are due by March 1. 

Recent stipends are supporting the following research endeavors:
