This conference is proudly cosponsored by Forham University's Center for Ethics Education and the Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy. This is the first cooperative effort between these two Centers.

The Fordham University Center for Ethics Education was created in 1999 to contribute to Fordham’s commitment to cultivating life-long habits of critical thinking, moral reflection, and articulate expression.  Drawing upon the Jesuit traditions of Wisdom & Learning and Men and Women for Others and the rich human diversity of New York City, the Center sponsors activities that provide students, faculty, professionals and the public with knowledge and skills to study, inform and shape a just society that nurtures the full-flourishing of peoples of diverse faiths and cultures. Affirming the complementary roles of faith and reason, the Center draws upon theology, philosophy, social and physical science, legal and other areas to provide the multidisciplinary education necessary to advance the common good.

The Center currently offers two degree-granting programs:

Master of Arts in Ethics and Society. The Master of Arts in Ethics and Society provides students with a cross-disciplinary foundation in the application of moral and ethical theory to social issues.

Graduate Certificate in Health Care Ethics. The Fordham University Advanced Certificate in Health Care Ethics is designed to enhance the student’s understanding of and participation in discourse regarding ethically-relevant policy decisions affecting mental and physical health care treatment and research.

The Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy at Fordham University aims to broaden the acquisition of knowledge and understanding about contemporary campaigns and elections through programs intended to provide training both within and beyond classroom instruction. Based on the belief that intellectual exchange is the foundation of learning, the Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy encourages and facilitates interaction between students, scholars and professionals and nurtures intellectual exchange and collaboration to help enhance the understanding of electoral politics and democracy. The Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy fosters ethical reflection about issues related to elections and electioneering and prepares students for leadership in a global society. The Center for Electoral Politics and Democracy also promotes outreach and seeks to engage the community at large through programs and events designed to promote community participation.
