Buttrill Endowed Fund for Ethics Events

With the goal of fostering discussion in a field of inquiry he valued, Carrol O. Buttrill ’38 established a fund through which the Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research promotes on-going investigations into ethical questions of significance to the Texas A&M community. The Carrol O. Buttrill ’38 Endowed Fund for Ethics supports annual lectures, roundtables, special events, and course activities.

The Buttrill Ethics Curriculum Enhancement Grant, introduced in 2007-2008, has now become an annual award to faculty for ethics-related curriculum development.
