The John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance was established
in 2000 at the University of Delaware and is part of the Lerner College of Business and Economics. It is one of the longest-standing corporate governance centers
in academia, and the first and only corporate governance center in
the State of Delaware, the legal home for a majority of the nation’s
The Center's mission is to provide a forum for business leaders, members of corporate boards, shareholders, the judiciary, the legal
community, academics, students, and others interested in
corporate governance issues to interact, learn and teach, with the goal of positively impacting and improving the field of
corporate governance and the capital markets. Center programs, publications and academic research
have helped to shape and influence numerous corporate governance
debates and developments on a national and international level. The
Center is recognized as a thought leader in the corporate governance field.
Using the fully
endowed Edgar S. Woolard, Jr. Chair of Corporate Governance as the base
for the Center, our goal is to develop programs that will generate
local, national and even international interest.
The Weinberg Center has published a brochure, which focuses on its mission and related activities.
