The mission of the Center for the Study of Ethics (CSE) is to promote and facilitate
the interdisciplinary exploration of ethical theory and practice. The center administers
a variety of programs designed to advance ethics education at Utah Valley University,
within our region and in national and international contexts.
Because an educated citizenry is necessary for the well-being of democracy, the study
of ethics is an aid to navigating the moral complexities of public, professional,
and personal life. The CSE is a non-advocacy organization committed to the inclusion
of diverse perspectives and practices.
The CSE is designed to advance the study and application of ethics in variety of disciplines
and contexts. We promote the disciplined study of ethical theory and practice and
explore ways in which ethics is integrated into professional and civic life. Center
