Drake establishes Ray Center; announces $1 million gift from Hy-Vee, Inc.
We should work to cultivate children’s concern for others
We annually present Iowa Character Awards to Iowans who consistently demonstrate good character.
"Civility costs nothing, and buys everything.”
Formerly Character Counts In Iowa, The Ray Center will continue and expand upon the work of Character Counts In Iowa with students, parents, athletic teams, corporations, nonprofits, government organizations, and municipalities. The Center will conduct research, provide programming and training, and publish scholarly works focusing on leadership, ethics, and civility.
We proudly serve as a Regional Center for both CHARACTER COUNTS! and the Institute for Excellence & Ethics.
Using these two projects as our foundation, we promote civility and character development to Iowa communities, workplaces, schools and families.
Our services range from professional development and research & assessment to recognition programs and public awareness campaigns.
We invite you to look around our website and discover the ways that we may assist you.
