Jeffrey Sachs Speech at Ohio State
The Center for Ethics and Human Values Innovation Group has selected the theme of sustainability for its 2015-2016 COMPAS program. For more information or to partner on possible events, please contact Don Hubin.
As part of its effort to promote civil and informed debate on important social and political issues, and to bring together researchers and students from across the University and the wider community, the OSU Center for Ethics and Human Values (CEHV) conducts a series of “year-long, University-wide conversations” called “Conversations on Morality, Politics, and Society” (COMPAS).
The COMPAS program aims to demonstrate how the University’s comprehensive intellectual resources can be aligned along their ethical dimension in order to help solve some of the serious problems confronting us. Through the COMPAS program, we hope not only to establish a new, more expansive model for a university ethics center, but to show how ethical concern provides a basis for productive exchange on complex social issues among researchers from diverse fields, and between the University and the broader community.
