Del Alamo/Hogan Symposium on Business Ethics

The annual Pamplin Business Ethics Symposium was started in the 1990-1991 academic year and celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2015. The purpose of the Symposium is to focus the attention of students, faculty, and the wider university community on ethical issues in business and society.

In 2009 we began coordinating this event with other departments on campus that also sponsored ethics-oriented events to hold these activities during the same week, which came to be known as “Ethics Week.” During this week we encourage faculty around the university to incorporate some discussion of ethics into their classes.

The symposium is sponsored by the Business Leadership Center, the Department of Management and by Pamplin accounting alumni Robert F. Hogan Jr., who earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in accounting in 1978 and 1980, respectively, and Jorge Del Alamo Jr., who earned a bachelor’s degree in accounting in 1969, and his wife Lin.
