The Beamer-Schneider Professorship was created to develop undergraduate character and judgment. Elmer G. Beamer was the accountant for Kent Hale Smith, and Hubert H. Schneider was Smith’s lawyer. At a time when there was a lot of corruption in Cleveland, both men were known for their integrity.  The professorship focuses on ethics (the pursuit of flourishing), morality (upholding what we owe to each other), and civics (being an engaged and responsible member of society, including being socially just).

Here is its proposal for Case Western Reserve University’s future, looking back over 9-years of the Professorship’s programs.
