Center for Integrity in Business

  • Business

    Business: Through innovative tools, training, and networks, we're building a community where businesspeople and organizations can come for the resources they need to pursue faithful service in the marketplace.

The Center for Integrity in Business at Seattle Pacific University tackles head-on the real-life challenges faced by business leaders. We bring a distinct Christian perspective to our work, believing that biblical insight and theological understanding are essential for effective business leadership in the world today. The combination of faith and business creates a new and powerful value proposition.

Season 1, Business on Purpose, offers the idea that the purpose of business, under God, is to serve.  Season 2, Serving Employees, explores how faith shapes the way organizations engage with and manage employees.  For more information, visit the Faith & Co. website.
 
Bill Pollard Faith & Business FellowshipBill Pollard Faith and Business Research Fellowship.  In 2017, former ServiceMaster CEO and Chairman Bill Pollard donated a vast collection of internal papers and speeches to the Work and Faith Collection at Seattle Pacific University. These documents provide unique insight into his lifelong endeavor to integrate Christian values in a diverse, multinational, publicly traded company.  CIB is offering a residential research opportunity to study the integration of faith and business using the Pollard papers and other resources in the Work and Faith Collection. Three select scholars will be invited to visit the SPU campus for two weeks during the summer of 2020.  Fellowship details and application.

Business You Can Believe In

The Center is both action oriented and guided by a commitment to empirical research. Drawing on theological and management scholarship, we seek transformation by creating tools, resources, and learning communities that enable businesspeople to lead with greater integrity for shaping a more just and flourishing world.
