 Honoring Ethics

The Markkula Center for applied ethics celebrates a quarter-century of digging deeper

The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics is celebrating 25 years of helping people in Silicon Valley and beyond make ethical decisions. The Center’s earliest programs focused on aiding faculty in all SCU departments integrate ethical issues into their teaching. By the end of that program, more than 80 courses, in addition to those in philosophy, included explicit discussions of ethics. Today, the Center continues to provide consultation on ethics pedagogy.

The Center has grown beyond the core SCU community and now offers six focus areas (Bioethics, Business Ethics, Campus Ethics, Character Education, Government Ethics, and Internet Ethics) and helps facilitate discussion in many more.

The public is invited to an open house celebrating the Center's first 25 May 9, 4 to 6 p.m., in the Arts and Sciences Building on the Santa Clara University campus. Please RSVP here.
