Students join Scott Burkholder as he gives a walking tour and lecture on public art in Baltimore during Ethics Week.

Think responsibly and act ethically in your personal and professional life.

Through a wide range of programs and activities—seminars, essay contests, the Ethics Bowl, internships and scholarships—we encourage you to think responsibly about the kinds of moral dilemmas and choices you face as a professional and as a global citizen.

Since 1987, we have provided faculty with teaching models, and we sponsor faculty research, student internships and public programs in business and professional ethics. We welcome speakers from all over the world to discuss moral, ethical, and philosophical issues in various facets of life. We have hosted discussions in fields ranging from business to art. We also encourage students to continue thinking about the ideas introduced in the classroom to other aspects of life by sponsoring the student organization Philosophy Club.
