NORTHROP GRUMMAN FOUNDATION AWARDS $1 MILLION TO UVA’S DARDEN GRADUATE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION

The Northrop Grumman Foundation has awarded a $1 million grant to the University of Virginia’s Darden Graduate School of Business Administration’s new Initiative for Business in Society.

Launched in November, the initiative’s research will explore issues that affect the dynamics between business, government and society, with a focus on corporate commitment and responsibility, according to statement from Northrop Grumman.

Alongside other founding contributors, Northrop Grumman leaders will serve on the initiative’s advisory committees, helping the Darden professors and students develop programs to advance the mission of the Initiative for Business in Society.

“Establishing a culture of ethics requires enlightened leadership, perseverance, commitment and engagement,” said Wes Bush, chairman, chief executive officer and president of Northrop Grumman. “We are pleased to support the Initiative for Business in Society to advance thought leadership in support of these principles.”
