AUSTIN, Texas-- October 20, 2010-- On November 3, join other members of the Texas Enterprise community for a lunch and spirited discussion led by Robert Prentice, the Ed & Molly Smith Centennial Professor of Business Law and Faculty Director of the Business Honors Program.

Prentice will discuss new ideas in business ethics which help clarify the landscape for business, government and policy leaders. He will also explain the animating ideas behind the creation of a new academic department at the university focused on the legal, ethical, cultural and regulatory environment faced by tomorrow’s leaders. Professor Prentice was recently named the chair of the Business, Government & Society Department (BGS) at McCombs School of Business, which aims to (a) educate tomorrow’s business leaders regarding how to satisfy the legal, ethical, cultural and regulatory demands of constituencies such as governments, communities, and customers, and (b) produce cutting-edge social science research at the intersection of business activity on the one hand and government regulation and societal expectations on the other.

Prentice has won many of UT’s most prestigious teaching awards and has written extensively about business ethics and the securities law.

The LBJ School of Public Affairs will contribute content to Texas Enterprise after its launch in the fall of 2010. 

The event cost is $15 per person, which includes soup/salad/sandwich bar, dessert and a beverage. For more information, or to RSVP to the event, please contact morgan.jones@austin.utexas.edu, call 512-471-8611, or visit: http://utmsb.convio.net/site/Calendar/876372362?view=Detail&id=110121
