CEHV has played an instrumental role in the development of Ohio State's new Shared Values. Our new ETHOS (Ethics at Ohio State) program encourages faculty, staff, and students to reflect on those Shared Values that define our university, and discuss how they can inform the research, teaching & learning, and other academic elements of our work together. For more on CEHV's role, click here.

Currently, ETHOS has two main components:

  • Shared Values Community Conversations. Each semester, CEHV hosts a university-wide event to encourage reflection on one or more of the Shared Values. 
  • ETHOS Fellows Program: a 6-session certificate program that introduces faculty, staff, and students to the values underlying the Shared Values Initiative and invites discussion of the significance and application of those values in their work. Participants are encouraged to pursue values-based efforts in their colleges, departments, or other units, by hosting discussions, events, or other projects. Completion of the program will result in a $500 fund and consultation from CEHV to initiate their projects. Those interested in participating in the program in the future may find more information here. Space is limited, but colleges, departments, or other units may also nominate and sponsor someone for the program (with a commitment to provide the $500 fund for the participant's values-related project).

Our existing "Conversation About Research Ethics" (CARE) program also advances reflection on our Shared Values in the context of research integrity. We encourage you to explore all our programming
