Director, Center for Ethics Education
Welcome to the Center for Ethics Education at Fordham University. The Center was established in 1999 to augment Fordham's commitment to cultivate life-long habits of critical thinking, moral reflection, and articulate expression, drawing upon the Jesuit maxims of Wisdom & Learning and Men and Women for Others.  The Center provides a broad range of multidisciplinary ethics education opportunities, including degree programs, major lectures and support for ethics research and scholarship.
