The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics, located at Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley, California, provides resources for analyzing real-world ethical issues and develops tools to address them.
The Center is committed to making knowledge about practical ethics available:
The Center's work focuses on identifying the unavoidable ethical dilemmas in life, studying these dilemmas and how they arise in organizations and in day-to-day personal experience, and designing ethical decision-making tools which will enable people of good will to manage those difficult ethical dilemmas effectively.
The Center's program areas are business ethics, bioethics, local government ethics, Internet ethics, campus ethics, and character education in K-12 schools. We also work in the fields of law and ethics, nonprofit ethics, environmental ethics, media ethics, and sports ethics.
