The Center for the Study of Ethics is an academic organization serving the campus of Utah Valley University and the Utah County community. The aim of the Ethics Center is to provide a forum in which a variety of ethical issues can be discussed in an atmosphere of openness and impartiality. The Center seeks to promote the Jeffersonian ideal of an educated citizenry by bringing diverse voices together in thoughtful and productive dialogue.
The Center for the Study of Ethics promotes the study of interdisciplinary ethics at UVU by offering regular and special events designed to foster community, student and faculty discussions of ethics.
The driving philosophy is centered on the belief that ethics is a dimension of academic inquiry rather than an isolated philosophical discipline.
