Ethics center celebrates 20th anniversary

Nov. 11, 2005

KALAMAZOO--An informal reception and panel discussion on Tuesday, Nov. 15, will mark the 20th anniversary of Western Michigan University's Center for the Study of Ethics in Society. The reception begins at 3 p.m., followed by the panel discussion at 3:30 p.m. in Room 208 of the Bernhard Center.

For 20 years, the center has brought together people from across campus and the Kalamazoo-area community interested in teaching and studying ethics. Ongoing projects include the center's lecture series, research ethics education for WMU faculty and graduate students and sponsoring WMU's Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl team.

The nine panelists at Tuesday's program will include Dr. Shirley Bach, center associate director; Dr. Sandra Borden and Dr. Michael Pritchard, center co-directors; and Dr. Diether Haenicke, WMU president emeritus. They will discuss the center's past, present and future and reflect on the purpose of an interdisciplinary ethics center.
