The Appomattox Project is a multi-year effort designed to focus on the ethical dimensions of democratic societies, civil discourse, public policy, and the sustainability of shared institutions. The project includes a variety of events and activities including workshops, public lectures, undergraduate research projects, panel discussions, and community engagement. As the site that ended the American Civil War, Appomattox Court House has become a symbol of reconciliation and civil discourse. The aim of the project is to engage critical issues in our public life and to explore how ethical principles and practices shape civil society.

The project is administered by the UVU Center for the Study of Ethics in collaboration with a variety campus and community partners.
