ETHOS is the Center for Ethics and Human Values' part of the Shared Values Initiative at Ohio State, fostering the values that define our university and integrating them into life, work, and learning on campus. ETHOS in particular invites ethical reflection on the mission of a leading public university and the practical ethical challenges that face researchers, instructors, students, program officers, and administrators.

Please check this space for developments for Autumn 2020 and beyond.

ETHOS started with an  ETHOS Spotlight video featuring Ohio State's Distinguished Professor of Soil Science, Rattan Lal, whose internationally-recognized work on soil and agriculture has been motivated by questions about the ethics of sustainability.
