The Prindle Institute for Ethics

Fostering ethics education, dialogue, and research since 2007

Ethics is an exploration of questions about the nature of right and wrong. It's about developing a thoughtful framework to help you decide what you should do when the answers aren't clear. The Prindle Institute for Ethics is one of the largest collegiate ethics institutes in the country and is dedicated to encouraging and fostering the study of ethics - in all its facets. Head over to our website to explore all that we do.

The Prindle Institute for Ethics' uniquely robust national engagement mission serves DePauw students, faculty and staff; academics and scholars throughout the United States and in the international community; life-long learners; and the Greencastle community in a variety of ways.

Locally, we provide opportunities and cultivate relationships that transform students, faculty members, and members of the Greencastle community into engaged citizens who can identify and lead thoughtful discussions about ethical issues when they arise. Globally, we support ethics-related teaching and research. We want to inspire everyone to discuss the critical issues of our time in a deliberate way. It’s hard to make sense of the moral complexities of personal, public, and professional life and we’re here to help.

No matter your path or place in life, we want to serve you. In addition to 19 ethics enrichment programs for DePauw students and faculty, the Prindle Institute has 12 national engagement programs to engage the nation and put students at the heart of national conversations about the critical issues of our time.
