The Center for the Study of Ethics (CSE) advances ethics education at Utah Valley University, within our community, and among scholars working in related fields of study. We support programs that engage critical questions in navigating the public, professional, and personal dimensions of human experience. The CSE is a nonpartisan, non-advocacy center committed to the inclusion of diverse voices and perspectives.
