In January 2010 COB was awarded a $1.25 million ethics grant from the Daniels Fund to further instill a high standard of ethics in the students attending UCCS.
Success of this program will depend on participation from the College's faculty and staff.  We invite you to share your suggestions, ask any questions and get involved.
