A Philadelphia energy industry entrepreneur has given $10 million to the Opus College of Business at the University of St. Thomas to support its programs in corporate ethics and responsibility. The gift announced today by St. Thomas is from Harry R. Halloran Jr., chairman and CEO of the American Refining Group Inc. and founder and CEO of Energy Unlimited Inc., two Pennsylvania-based companies. He also is the founder of Halloran Philanthropies, an organization that supports efforts to enhance global business ethics, microfinance and community service. "Over the past decade I have come to know and admire St. Thomas' scholars and programs devoted to corporate ethics," Halloran said. "The university and its Opus College of Business are leaders in this critically important field, and I am grateful to be able to support their efforts." Halloran's donation to St. Thomas' Opening Doors capital campaign will support work in corporate ethics and responsibility undertaken by two organizations in the Opus College of Business: the SAIP (Self-Assessment and Improvement Process) Institute and the Center for Ethical Business Cultures.
