Primary Instructor:

Is the University a moral institution? This course will examine moral dimensions of the University and of the academic activity of faculty and students. We will think about how to approach our own learning and participation in the community of the University by questioning academic life and the University from moral and social standpoints. We will work to develop understanding of the moral theories of Mill, Kant, and Aristotle and will seek to apply them through a case-study approach to a variety of issues such as academic integrity; the purposes of higher education and of the university; academic freedom, codes of conduct, and other aspects of the university as an academic community; and the University’s moral and social obligations as an institution.
