Mission & Vision 

The Neel Center for Corporate Governance’s mission is to conduct and disseminate nationally recognized research on aspects of corporate governance with a significant focus on public policy. Faculty members across a number of academic disciplines form the Neel Center’s body of work. The Haslam College of Business and UT’s College of Law collaborate to support the Neel Center.

Through our Distinguished Speaker Series, the Neel Center addresses a broader range of public policy issues and brings a greater diversity of perspectives to the governance challenges currently facing corporate America. Research efforts are often motivated by these presentations and focus on a variety of current topics in corporate governance including the audit process, executive compensation, board structure and firm performance.
