BACKGROUND:
The Richard W. Blackburn Endowed Lecture on Civility and Integrity was established through a generous endowment gift to the GW School of Business from Mr. Blackburn. A distinguished alumnus of the Law School, Mr. Blackburn is Retired Executive Vice President, General Counsel and Chief Administrative Officer for Duke Energy and a trustee of the George Washington University. Mr. Blackburn endowed the lecture because of his belief that success in business always depends on trust and that civility and integrity are the essential foundations for creating and sustaining that trust. This annual endowed lecture will be incorporated as the capstone signature event for the undergraduate School of Business First Year Development Program, a two semester long course sequence required for all first year undergraduate students in the George Washington University School of Business.
