The Lincoln Center and the Lincolns

"I believe there is a strong correlation between ethical conduct, economic success and interpersonal relationships. It is in the best interests of individuals and organizations to be ethical.”

— David C. Lincoln


In 1998, the Lincoln family invested in ethics at ASU to improve their community through far-reaching and meaningful standards for ethics and education. We believe that this commitment to ethics across the curriculum is essential to ASU’s Charter and promise of measuring success not by who we exclude, but by who we include and how they succeed.

The Lincoln Center for Applied Ethics honors the Lincoln legacy today through our many initiatives that center the human at the intersection of ethics and innovation.
