About the Center

Mission
All of our work at the Center for Ethics and Culture is aimed at one goal: to share the richness of the Catholic moral and intellectual tradition through teaching, research, and dialogue, at the highest level and across a range of disciplines.

The Center is administered by a Director and staff, with guidance from our Advisory Board and associated scholars.

Fellows of the Center
Through the generosity of its donors, the Center is able to host both world-renowned and up-and-coming scholars as fellows. In addition to engaging their own scholarly pursuits, fellows at the Center participate in the intellectual life of the Center while on campus, giving lectures for students and participating in the Center's programming.
