Yearly Ethics Theme

2022-2023: Beneficence: Practicing an Ethics of Care

How should we think about our responsibilities to care for ourselves, for people that we know and love, and for others whom we don't know, disagree with, or have been harmed by? If we aspire to practice beneficence within our personal, public, and professional lives, how can we translate these values into actions? The Mudd Center’s 2022-23 program will feature public lectures addressing concepts of beneficence as well as an interactive series of events - CareLabs – through which we will explore the practice of care.
