Ethics Lecture Series

The Ethics Lecture Series, sponsored by the Department of Philosophy and Religion, brings ethicists from both religious and philosophical backgrounds to explore questions of value, justice, responsibility and meaning in the realm of human conduct and the moral life. Lecturers examine significant ethical issues in the contemporary world and ways in which moral reflection might be brought to bear on them. The series is intended to bring focus to the study and practice of ethics among our students and the larger community.

The 2013-14 Ethics Lecture Series will be announced soon.
