Center for Integrity in Business

  • Business

    Business: Through innovative tools, training, and networks, we're building a community where businesspeople and organizations can come for the resources they need to pursue faithful service in the marketplace.

The Center for Integrity in Business at Seattle Pacific University tackles head-on the real-life challenges faced by business leaders. We bring a distinct Christian perspective to our work, believing that biblical insight and theological understanding are essential for effective business leadership in the world today. When faith and business come together, a new value proposition results.

Business You Can Believe In

At the Center, we’re guided by a commitment to empirical research, yet we’re action oriented. Drawing on theological and management scholarship, we seek transformation by creating tools, resources, and learning communities that enable businesspeople to lead with greater integrity for shaping a more just and flourishing world.

Transported by Giving

Can you imagine owning a company that earns $60+ million a year — and giving the company to charity? Brothers Alan and Eric Barnhart of Barnhart Crane and Rigging did more than imagine it.

We are delighted that Alan Barnhart will be on the SPU campus for a breakfast event on June 11 to share how generosity reshaped the family business. Learn more...
