Professor Schepers Recognized as a Thought Leader in Trustworthy Business Behavior
Donald H. Schepers, PhD., Associate Dean of the Zicklin School of Business and Professor of Management at Baruch College has been named by Trust Across America (TAA) as one of 2013's Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior. According to TAA, the people selected collectively represent a group that can genuinely transform the way organizations do business.
Dr. Schepers was recognized for his extensive work when he served as Director of the Robert Zicklin Center for Corporate Integrity, which serves as a forum for discussion of a broad range of contemporary issues confronting U.S. corporations and capital markets including transparency of corporate reporting, corporate governance, examining legal and ethical corporate behavior, spotlighting executive accountability, corporate responsibility in global business development, risk assessment and amelioration, resolving conflicting corporate stakeholder interests, and evaluating the role of governmental regulation. In fall 2012, Schepers was appointed Associate Dean of the Zicklin School of Business. Read more.
Baruch All-Hands Meeting Scheduled January 18
Baruch staff are asked to meet in Mason Hall, in the 17 Lexington Building, from 10 a.m. to noon to learn about the College’s Strategic Plan, 2013-2018. College offices will suspend operations during that period to allow all staff to participate.
President Mitchel Wallerstein will address the College Community and discuss Baruch’s Strategic Plan, 2013-2018, which will guide the College’s efforts for the next five years. The plan sketches a variety of efforts that include enhancing the student experience at Baruch through new recruitment efforts, exchange programs and curricular innovations. The plan also sets achievable goals for online education and executive programs for senior professionals. It also renews Baruch’s commitment to engage effectively with the communities in New York City.
Baruch Hosts Ethics Week 2013
Ethics Week 2013 at Baruch College will take place from March 18-23. All subjects that relate to ethics are appropriate, but this year the Provost’s Office hopes that issues of academic integrity will be a significant focus.
Faculty members are being asked to consider organizing class time around issues of ethics, especially as they relate to your subject or discipline or to academic integrity more generally. (Each school has adopted learning goals in ethical awareness or ethical decision making.)
Faculty are also encouraged to work with the Provost’s Office to invite distinguished guests to speak to our community during Ethics Week either in an event open to all or just to their class. Modest stipends for a small number of speakers are available to those who act quickly.
The Abraham J. Briloff Prizes in Ethics will be awarded during Ethics Week 2013. For more information, contact Dennis Slavin, Associate Provost and Assistant Vice President at (646)660-6504 or firstname.lastname@example.org

Baruch Performing Arts Center Events
Poor Dog Group presents The Murder Ballad (1938), January 18, at 8 p.m.; January 19 @ 11 a.m. & 10 p.m.; and January 20 @ 11 a.m., Baruch Performing Arts Center
With a murky mix of desire, jealousy and emancipatory yearning, Poor Dog Group's latest movement-based work gives forceful physical life to Jelly Roll Morton's legendary 1938 recording. Originally performed in the brothels of New Orleans’ steamy Storyville District, Morton’s song revels in the nastiness of its heroine’s voice, whose feral physical energy lays claim to the violent impulses of a woman betrayed. Free admission. For more information, click here.
Jan. 25, 9 a.m., Family Business Mastermind Group
Room 2-140, Newman Vertical Campus
