A Message from Director William C. McCoy, Ed.D

I am very happy to serve as the Director of the Robert J. Rutland Institute for Ethics at Clemson University. Clemson is a top-notch university that continues to set and achieve new goals on a consistent basis. Our penchant for excellence in all that we do is clearly evident on and off the football field. With world-class academic positioning, we continue to march into a very bright future laden with success.

The Rutland Institute for Ethics is an integral part of the university’s bright and successful future. Our programming is designed to enhance university goals. Our focus on ethical decision-making impacts every administrator, faculty member, staff member, and student on this campus. Alumni of the university are also assisting in this endeavor by coming back on campus and speaking to students about ethics as it pertains to their discipline. It is our goal to provide every person associated with Clemson the necessary tools to make good decisions in the face of ethical dilemmas, and we are well on our way to making significant inroads in this area.

Join us as we become the change that we wish to see at Clemson and in the world. A commitment to ethical decision-making is a pathway to personal and professional greatness.
