Arendt’s lecture hits at the heart of America’s values, long ago and today

“Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness” were key values according to our country’s founders. So what would they think, then, of our 24/7 work schedules, the outsized value we place upon work and material consumption today, and the fear that drives many to acquiesce to organizational demands that run counter to their own values and needs? Have our individual rights and freedoms been sacrificed to the organizational value system.”

These were a few of the questions explored by Austin E. Cofrin School of Business Professor Lucy Arendt on Wednesday to a packed house of UW-Green Bay students, faculty members, staff and community members. One of her areas of expertise lies in understanding how leaders within organizations make their decisions as well as the consequences of those decisions, on both the organization and the individuals who work within it. Her lecture, title “Made to Serve: The Tragic corruption of America’s Founding Values,” spoke to a trend she says she has seen through her research on the subversion of individual rights and freedoms to organizational goals, including profit.
