Introduction

The Department’s Center for Applied Ethics brings guest speakers to the campus and sponsors conferences, research, and new courses in medical ethics and business ethics. The Department’s Center for the Advancement of Philosophy in Schools (CAPS) places advanced philosophy students into area schools to promote philosophy for children. The Department houses the Cognititve Science Group, an interdisciplinary collaborative project that encourages a wide range of research and instructional resource development such as talks, conferences, and courses. The group is currently participating in the development of an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in Cognitive Science.
