History of the Kerr Award

Thomas M. Kerr is Professor Emeritus of Law and Industrial Administration at the Tepper School of Business.  The award 
was established in his name in 1986 by a group of his former students who believe strongly in the 
importance of ethical conduct in the business environment.  Given Professor Kerr's lifelong 
commitment to the teaching and practice of law, ethics, and civil liberties, they decided upon an
award in his name as an appropriate means of highlighting these issues and honoring him. 

The original award was intended for MBA students.  John Hooker established a similar award for
undergraduate business majors in 2000.
