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. Because ethics is a vital dimension of human life, we support programs that engage critical questions in navigating the public, professional, and personal dimensions of the human experience. The CSE is a nonpartisan, non-advocacy center committed to the inclusion of diverse voices and perspectives.
