Rutland Institute for Ethics

About Rutland Ethics Alliance

The Rutland Ethics Alliance is the membership arm of the Rutland Institute for Ethics. Its main purpose is to bring in funds for programs, events and operations. As the institute is far from fully endowed, seeking and acquiring members who are like-minded in their passion for integrity and spreading responsible, reflective ways to make ethical decisions, is keenly important to the sustainability of the institute. Membership contributions fall under the umbrella of the Clemson Fund and as such are tax deductible and count towards Clemson Fund benefits as well. Rutland Ethics Alliance member levels, benefits and current members follow.

Membership Benefits


Members of the Rutland Ethics Alliance support the mission and values of the Robert J. Rutland Institute for Ethics and acknowledge their importance to the creation of a stable and peaceful future.

Annual membership in the Rutland Ethics Alliance is recorded as a tax-deductible contribution to the Clemson University Foundation and donors are eligible for the Clemson Fund annual gift clubs. Rutland Ethics Alliance members receive access to Rutland Institute programming, such as consulting, lectures, discussion forums and the Ethics Toolbox Project, a customized ethics-training program for business and professionals. In addition, the alliance offers special benefits based on annual membership levels.


We have contacted the various Upstate superintendents to seek nominations for the 2014 session of Ethics Across the Curriculum for K-12 Teachers planned for Tuesday, July 8th. Scholarship recipients and awardees will be posted at a later date.

In 2013 ELEVEN K-12 teachers were awarded scholarships to attend a session. They represented 2 high schools, 3 middle schools and 6 elementary schools from 5 school districts in the Upstate.

This program would not be possible without our REALeaders, Gold and Platinum partners – all of which have the scholarships as a benefit offering for their level of membership.

To become a REALeader Gold or Platinum level member to take advantage of this benefit of assigning a valuable professional development seminar to a K-12 teacher, click here: https://cualumni.clemson.edu/give/rutlandalliance or call the Rutland Institute for Ethics office at 864.656.5379.

The Rutland Institue Belongs To


The World’s Most Ethical (WME) Companies designation recognizes companies that truly go beyond making statements about doing business “ethically” and translate those words into action. WME honorees not only promote ethical business standards and practices internally, they exceed legal compliance minimums and shape future industry standards by introducing best practices today.

This year’s 144 honorees represent 41 industries and include 21 first-time honorees. In this eighth year of recognizing companies, Ethisphere is honoring the largest group of organizations based outside the U.S. – 38 organizations from 21 countries and 5 continents.

Since it’s inception in 2007 there are 3 companies in the Upstate who have made the list each of the EIGHT years: Milliken & Company is headquartered in Spartanburg. Fluor and General Electric have facilities here. According to Milliken’s PRWeb release hotlinked below, there are only SEVEN companies globally that have made the list all eight consecutive years. It’s an amazing feat to which we give our heartiest of congratulations.

If you view the list of honorees via the hotlinks above or below, you will notice many companies with facilities in the Upstate who are also on the 2014 list.
