Center for Ethics in Financial Services
The Center for Ethics strives to increase awareness of ethical issues and raise the level of ethical behavior in the financial services industry. The Center promotes ethical behavior through program offerings that go beyond the "rules" of market conduct to help executives and producers be more sensitive to ethical issues and think more critically about ethical solutions. The Center for Ethics also serves as a resource for cutting-edge research and discussion of emerging ethical issues within the financial services industry. The Mitchell Forum on Ethical Leadership is a specific program that engages chief executives and distinguished business ethicists in discussing ethical behavior in the financial services industry. The Forum recognizes the substantial support provided by James A. and Linda R. Mitchell to establish and sustain the Center for Ethics at The American College. After a distinguished career in financial services, Mr. Mitchell retired as the chairman and CEO of the IDS Life Insurance Company. He has also provided leadership to The College as Chair of both the College's Board of Trustees and the Foundation Board of Directors.
