The Prindle Institute for Ethics
The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics promotes critical reflection and constructive debate about the most important ethical questions: What is right, just, and good, and what must human beings do — now and in the future — to meet their moral responsibilities? The Institute seeks to explore with students the moral challenges of the 21st Century and encourage them not to remain silent in the face of injustice.
The Prindle Institute is an essential element of daily life at DePauw University. A generous gift from Janet W. Prindle '58 funded the construction of a state-of-the-art facility that houses the Institute. Standing on the knoll of an old quarry site that was reclaimed as an extension of the DePauw University campus, the Institute's beautiful natural setting provides an inspirational environment for gatherings to mine new veins of research, dialogue and teaching.
We host and facilitate substantive explorations at the intersection of personal and professional ethics. Our programs embrace both the practical and the philosophical with strong emphasis on the spirit of inquiry. Speakers from across the country and around the globe come to Prindle to share their expertise and spark our moral imagination.
The Institute also provides support for DePauw faculty members to further incorporate ethics in their teaching and research. Our intern program, supported by a gift from DePauw alumni Charles W. and Anne (Mossberg '51) Hillman '52, allows outstanding DePauw students to work closely with Institute staff and scholars in planning and conducting programs and events. Campus organizations and community groups find the Institute an ideal setting for retreats that focus on values and ethics.
Welcome to The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics at DePauw University. We hope you will join us for lively conversations, provocative forums and meaningful moments of reflection.
