The Institute for Ethical Leadership at the Rutgers Business School announced it has appointed Dr. Joanne B. Ciulla its newest academic director.

Ciulla will also become professor of leadership ethics at Rutgers Business School's Department of Management and Global Business.

"I was attracted to Rutgers because I saw great potential in the Institute for Ethical Leadership to serve the academic, business, nonprofit and government communities," Ciulla said.

Before Rutgers, Ciulla spent 25 years as the Coston Family Chair of Leadership and Ethics at the Jepson School of Leadership Studies, University of Richmond. She also was one of the founding faculty of the Jepson School, which is the first liberal arts undergraduate school of leadership studies in the world.

"We are pleased and consider ourselves fortunate to have attracted Joanne to the IEL," James Abruzzo, institute co-founder, said. "Her values, energy and desire to make the IEL a significant force for good are aligned with ours."

Along with her work at the University of Richmond, Ciulla has had academic appointments at La Salle University, Harvard Business School and the Wharton School; and visiting appointments at Oxford University, Nyenrode University, University of Fort Hare and University of Melbourne. 

Ciulla is filling the seat left empty after the 2015 death of Dr. Ann Buchholtz, former IEL research director and professor of leadership and ethics at Rutgers Business School.
