The vision for the Center for Ethical and Sustainable Business is to be the Bay Area epicenter for integrating ethical, environmental and social sustainability business practices through engagement between San Francisco State University's Lam Family College of Business students and Bay Area businesses.

The University's longstanding commitment to educate students about equity and social justice aligns CESB’s vision towards its mission to hone best practices in business integrity, social impact and environmental sustainability through business leader presence on campus, business funding support for students’ CESB vision-related projects, and developing CESB learning and research communities for students and faculty.
