1 The Challenge of Integrating Principle-Centered Leadership Into the Business Curriculum: Lessons from the LMU Experience Bill Lindsey & Larry Pate Loyola Marymount University 9 th Annual Colleagues in Jesuit Business Education Conference July 28-30, 2006

2 The College of Business began to teach in the University, and many who heard their professors were astounded. They said, "Where did they get all this? What is this wisdom that has been given to them? Is not this the Business school…brother of Liberal Arts, are not their sisters Theology and Philosophy here with us?" And they took offense at them. Then the Dean said to them, "Prophets are not without honor, except in their hometown, and among their own kin, and in their own house." And they could do no deed of power there. And the College of Business was amazed at their unbelief…Then they went about among the villages teaching. Prophets in Our Own Country Liberal Arts 6:1-6
