Call for Proposals: The Role of Business in Society
The Center for Principled Business (CPB) at Kansas State University is pleased to announce that we are again accepting proposals for grants to support creative and engaged research projects focusing on the role of business in society. The CPB is interested in supporting unique projects from across the university; this call is open to all faculty members (tenure track and non-tenure track).
Types of Projects Supported
The CPB desires to support a wide variety of projects that can include traditional academic research articles, literature review and synthesis articles, practitioner-oriented articles, case studies, and creative projects.
The vision of the Center is to be the premiere institution for the study of effective practices that foster business innovation and growth for the benefit of society. In particular, we are interested in projects that examine the role of entrepreneurship and innovation in business, how the creation of value in a business benefits society, and how creative activities can be turned into valuable businesses.

1. Project Title and Introduction. The project title should include the name of the project and the applicant’s name(s) and contact information (including the applicant’s department). The introduction of the proposal should include a brief narrative of the proposed project a discussion of how the project addresses one of our three focus areas for this call: 1.) the role of entrepreneurship and innovation in business, 2.) how the creation of value in a business benefits society, and 3.) how creative activities can be turned into valuable businesses.
2. Methodology and Analysis. As appropriate, please include a brief discussion of the methodology or analysis that will be used in the project to generate outcomes.
