Mission: The Center for Ethics and Public Engagement aims to extend conversation beyond the classroom by examining assumptions, exchanging ideas, and encouraging responsible action in our world.
This mission is supported through programming such as guest speakers and residencies, brown-bag lunch discussions, reading groups, news hour gatherings, and panel discussions.
Through these vibrant exchanges, the Center strives to connect the intellectual learning of the liberal arts with lives of active service and responsible citizenship.
