Richard De George, a Kansas University distinguished professor of philosophy, has earned a third lifetime achievement award from the Society for Business Ethics.
He received the society’s Lifetime Achievement Award in Scholarship at the group’s annual meeting earlier this year and has now won lifetime awards from the society in the three areas on which faculty are judged, including teaching, research and service. Much of his scholarship has been in the realm of business ethics, and De George was one of the founding members of the Society for Business Ethics and served on its first executive committee.
A professor at KU since 1959, De George has published more than 20 books and more than 200 articles, many in the business ethics field. He has also received other awards from the university, including the HOPE award honoring an outstanding educator and a chancellor’s career teaching award.
