Mission and Vision

Our Vision
The Center for Professional and Applied Ethics provides leadership in 21st-century ethics education and research in the Greater Charlotte region and beyond.

Our Mission
The Center for Professional and Applied Ethics collaborates with a diverse range of on-campus and off-campus constituencies. Together we shape an intellectual, interdisciplinary, and moral space in which people can critically assess, thoughtfully discuss, and strategically address the ethical challenges that confront them, specifically in the realms of business, healthcare, information technology, engineering, education, the arts, popular culture, and public policy.

Our Specific Aims

  1. To engage students and faculty from the university’s colleges, departments, and programs in ethics-related educational events, research collaborations, and out-reach activities;
  2. To invite members of the off-campus professional community to partner on specific ethics-related projects;
  3. To provide ethics-related educational programming to the general public; and
  4. To increase awareness on and off campus of the ethical importance of public practices and policies, identifying methods for positive social change.
