Markkula Center of Applied Ethics

Behind the Ethics Agenda (2003-04)

The Ethics Agenda was developed by the Emerging Issues Program of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University. Through this program, the Center provides timely analysis and opinion on ethical issues in the news. Center Senior Fellow Rob Elder and Executive Director Kirk O. Hanson are co-directors of the program. This Outlook was originally introduced at a public forum on October 23, 2003. The Outlook is an annual event.
