the word ethos with a red o

The ETHOS Fellows Program is a 6-session certificate program that:

  • Introduces faculty, staff, and students to the values underlying the University's Shared Values Initiative
  • Invites discussion of the significance and application of those values in their work, and
  • Empowers participants to develop further values-based events or projects in their home units

Participants must commit to advancing 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 project fund, consultation from CEHV to initiate efforts, and ongoing collaboration among fellows facilitated by CEHV.

WHO:
