Prior to Dr. David Krueger's work at BW, he was executive director of the Center for Ethics and Corporate Policy in Chicago, a nonprofit organization that brought together the business, academic and religious communities of greater Chicago for conferences, consulting, ongoing programs and research in business and organizational ethics. 

He holds the Charles E. Spahr Chair in Managerial and Corporate Ethics, the second oldest endowed chair in business ethics in the country.  In this role, he provides a wide array of business ethics courses among BW's business programs as well as other ethics-related courses at the university.  He also offers outreach programs for BW and the wider community, including an annual Charles Spahr lecture in business ethics and an annual summer ethics teaching workshop for BW faculty.
