The Center for Practical & Professional Ethics

The Center for Practical & Professional Ethics takes as its overriding mission to foster and enhance the place of ethics in professional and public discourse, and to foster and support ethical practice, both in the University Community and in the broader Sacramento Region. Its mission is, therefore, educative, scholarly and practical.

We offer a variety of programming throughout the academic year, including the Ethics Symposium each fall and the Nammour Symposium in the spring. All our campus events are free and open to the public. Check the Campus Events Calendar for more information, and follow CPPE on Facebook.
