Supporters of the Mann Center

Colson, Westmoreland and Knapp

The work of the Frances Marlin Mann Center for Ethics and Leadership is only possible with the loyal and continued support of our donors. Founded in 2008 with support from Marvin L. Mann in honor of his late wife, the center strives to connect ethics and leadership across the disciplines.

Through a variety of programs designed to address community, business and professional audiences, the center highlights issues facing society in a timely, relevant way. The center also aspires to promote the moral development of Samford students and empower faculty to integrate ethics into the curriculum. To learn how you can support this vital work, please contact Mann Center Program Manager Azalea Hulbert at 205.726.4634.
