George and Carol Bauer Leadership Center

The George and Carol Bauer Leadership Center accelerates Olin Business School’s efforts to develop leaders of competence and character who are equipped to make a positive and principled difference in their organizations, their communities, and society at large.

Our objective—the development of values-based leaders—is made possible by the generous support of George and Carol Bauer. Their vision, energy, and example of ethical leadership have been, and will continue to be, an inspiration.

“Leadership, in the 21st century, is one of the most important things facing our society... the idea of leaders reflecting on morality, and how to apply it in both their business and private lives, is terribly important.”

–George Bauer
