State Board Report

September 2015

A series of public ethics discussions are being hosted by the NASBA Center for the Public Trust on university campuses in the Mountain and Southwest Regions. Collaborating with Dr. Kelly Richmond Pope, Chief Content Officer of Helios Digital Learning, and the Daniels Fund, the CPT is going to be presenting footage from an in-process documentary entitled "All the Queen’s Horses," which tells the story of Rita Crundwell, former controller of Dixon, IL, who embezzled $53-million from the city over 20 years. The "Ethics Town Halls" will give attendees an opportunity to ask questions and receive more information about the documentary in development. These events are open to students, faculty and business and community leaders.

The Ethics Town Hall meetings are scheduled for:

  • September 2 – University of Utah, Salt Lake City
  • September 17 – University of Wyoming, Laramie
  • September 24 – Colorado Mesa University, Grand Junction
  • September 29 – New Mexico State University, Las Cruces

  • October 22- University of Northern Colorado, Greeley
  • November 5- University of Colorado, Colorado Springs

CPT President Alfonzo Alexander explained that the Ethics Town Hall program is designed to educate the public about white-collar crime and the importance of ethical decision-making to society.
