About the Arthur J. Holland Program for Ethics in Government
The Arthur J. Holland Program on Ethics in Government honors the distinguished Rutgers alumnus and long-time mayor of Trenton. The program seeks to promote transparency and honesty in public affairs and to improve public policy and government practices by replacing cynicism and apathy with awareness. It provides opportunities for students, public officials and the general public to focus on practices that can be adopted by government entities and individual practitioners to serve constituents as responsively and ethically as possible. The annual program components include a public lecture and discussion, a workshop at the New Jersey League of Municipalities Conference, and occasional other initiatives.
