When I saw a site entitled Rock Ethics Institute, I was hoping for a site that examined ethics in the world of rock and roll. "A Kantian take on groupies" "Plagarism and royalties"
Or even better a site that applied rock ethics to real life problems.
Turns out it is part of the
University of Pennsylvania Penn State [see comment].
A $5 million gift from Douglas and Julie Rock to the Department of Philosophy and the College of the Liberal Arts at Penn State established the Rock Ethics Institute in 2001. Douglas L. Rock, a 1968 Penn State psychology graduate, is president, chief executive officer, and chairman of Houston-based Smith International, a worldwide supplier of products and services used to drill oil and gas wells. Rock also is a director and former chairman of the Petroleum Equipment Suppliers Association and a director of Viad Corp.
