CIB: Academy (Knowledge Generation)

Bruce Baker

Scholars shape ideas. They are critical partners in all we do at the Center for Integrity in Business. So we serve academic partners by creating opportunities for idea cultivation, meaningful connection, and high-impact research at the intersection of business, ethics, and Christian theology.

We believe scholars benefit from:

  • Working with other thought leaders to identify and map research goals and interests.
  • Having access to businesses and other organizations as learning laboratories for best practices and scholarly inquiry.
  • Networking, connecting, and identifying professionally with others with similar values and commitments.

Research Grants

CIB helps to underwrite research related to a Christian understanding of business. We invite both scholars and business practitioners to participate. Review our CIB Research RFP (PDF) for more about CIB grants.
