About the Prince-Chavanne Distinguished Lecture Series

The Dunham College of Business hosts the Prince-Chavanne Distinguished Lecture annually. Speakers focus on the role of Christian ethics in business. These lectures are open to the entire University community; additional events are provided solely for Dunham College of Business students.

The Prince-Chavanne Chair in Ethics was funded by a generous gift from Harry and Hazel Chavanne, who endowed the Prince-Chavanne Professorship in appreciation of the Christian example their parents set in business and life.
