For the past several years, Concordia University Texas and the College of Business have been sponsors of the Ethics in Business Awards, sponsored by the Samaritan Center for Counseling and Pastoral Care. This award has become an important milestone for Austin-area businesses as they seek to be known for their ethical business practices. This year's award banquet was held on May 4, 2011.
Concordia University Texas serves as both the home for candidate interviews and the selection committee. Concordia students do both the initial interview and the in-depth interview of the candidate from the three areas including business, non-profit and individual. Nominees are judged on five distinct categories: Being Respectful, Being Fair, Being Honest, Striving for Justice, and Embracing Sustainability.
