The educational projects developed by UCCS Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Fellows cross academic areas,  incorporate Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative principles, and demonstrate application to business and nonbusiness disciplines. Ethics fellows share these projects in faculty roundtables that UCCS faculty and staff, and faculty from other educational institutions, attend. An estimated 4,655 students were reached in the 2014-15 academic year through the work of Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Fellows, curriculum development funds, and faculty roundtables.

The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative at UCCS is a resource for principle-based ethics education, serving students, educators, and business community. The Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative was launched in 2010 to advance principle-based ethics education in business schools. The ethics initiative promotes principles as a constant foundation for personal and organizational ethical decision-making and leadership. The UCCS College of Business is one of eight original participating schools in the initiative and is an active member of the Daniels Fund Ethics Consortium.
