About the Institute


From its beginning, the Ethics Institute has been distinguished by a grassroots faculty interest in ethics. We now comprise over 400 Dartmouth faculty, students, and administrators with interests in applied and professional ethics ranging from medical, business, legal, and engineering ethics, to the ethics of teaching and research. We gather in seminar groups, at forums, and task force meetings to discuss and research cutting-edge ethical issues, to prepare publications, organize symposia and conferences, and develop courses.

Dartmouth faculty who teach ethics have acquired a national reputation for their commitment to the objectivity and rationality of moral values. This perspective adds a distinctive dimension to their teaching and research in areas such as medical and business ethics.
