Established in 2006, the Ethics Center encourages reflection on a broad range of values issues, from social policy to professional challenges to interpersonal relations.
Initial efforts focused on the common values at the core of the academic enterprise: integrity and freedom, as well as the commitment to treat alternative views seriously.
Given the connections between faithful engagement in the academic process and the honest attempt to lead a good life, we view dedication to academic values as an essential element of the more general concern with ethical development.
Underlying the Center’s efforts is the desire to enhance an institutional environment in which each member of the community is encouraged to engage in the reflection required to clarify and to deepen the ethical commitments that must guide our actions.
