A Beacon for Excellence in Ethics

To establish Michigan State University as a global hub for ethical thinking and decision-making, MSU is seeking to create the MSU Ethics Institute which will advance innovative research and thought leadership in ethical theory. The institute will coordinate the university-wide educational and research initiatives to amplify the strengths of existing applied ethics centers and foster the growth of new centers on campus. The institute is designed to support the growth of existing initiatives and foster the development of new college-level or discipline-based endeavors.

Ethics Inventory Survey

We are assembling an inventory of the ways that we are engaging ethical work at MSU through our curriculum, research, creative activity, administration, and other aspects of campus life.

This will guide our strategic plan for developing a world class Ethics Institute that meets the needs of faculty, staff, administrators, and students.
