UCF Center for Ethics

The UCF Center for Ethics aims to cultivate an institutional culture of ethical literacy, including a unified and ongoing conversation about ethics and a habit of practical application around ethics in research, teaching and partnerships. The Center will help the UCF community gain a richer understanding of emerging ethical issues, as well as the tools necessary to applying that new knowledge in a rapidly changing world where technology is creating many more opportunities to think ethically about our work and our future. Fostering collaborations with faculty, students, and administrators, we lead ethics-related research in a range of areas including health, information technologies, environmental impacts, and education.
