The Collegium's Mandate

The York Collegium for Practical Ethics organizes a seminar series that addresses issues related to practical ethics on a monthly basis. It may also work with other organizations to organize workshops and conferences on practical ethics.

One of the Collegium's goals is to raise awareness of practical ethics and to facilitate the integration of ethics into the everyday life of the surrounding communities, including businesses, government, and the professions.

The forerunner of the Collegium was the York Centre for Practical Ethics, which operated from 1994 to 2013. The Centre was established in 1994 to further research in the field of practical ethics and to support the teaching of practical ethics at York University.

The library that was created by the York Centre for Practical Ethics will be transferred to the Collegium and will be housed in 026 McLaughlin College.
