David Banta ('63), founder of Banta Asset Management, LP, and his wife, Stephanie Beale Banta ('63), endowed the Center for Business, Ethics and Society in 2006. Their deep concern for the role of ethics education in business comes not simply from Mr. Banta's experience as a successful investment manager; it reflects their ongoing commitment to liberal education as a foundation for personal and professional growth.
