Previous Lippin Lectures

The Lippin lecture is made possible by support from Richard B. Lippin and the late Ronnie Lippin. The Lippin lecture focuses on current ethical issues in the fields of business, medicine, science, and technology, as well as questions of justice. Richard Lippin is a 1968 psychology graduate of Penn State who established the lectureship with his late wife because he felt that much of the integrity and honesty that he knew growing up now seems lacking in the world of business. His company, the Los Angeles-based Lippin Group, does marketing consulting for the entertainment industry.
