Southern New Hampshire University Announces New Recipient of Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics

It is with great pride that SNHU announces Dr. Lundy Lewis as the new recipient of the Christos and Mary Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics and Social Responsibility. Dr. Lewis is Professor of Computer Information Technology and Game Design & Development at SNHU. His proposal, “New Ethical Dilemmas and New Solutions with Advanced Technologies such as Video Games, Robots, and Intelligent Avatars” was unanimously selected by the eight-person committee.

One of the goals of the Christos and Mary Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics and Social Responsibility is to “develop state of the art theory and research in ethics.” In order to achieve this goal, Dr. Lewis will be awarded a sabbatical-type leave to conduct his research during the first year of his Chair appointment which will commence in fall 2013. The second year of his appointment will focus on fostering campus and community-wide dialogue and debate about ethical practices. Dr. Lewis’ research and scholarship will “educate students, staff, faculty, and the SNHU community about the social and ethical issues facing today’s global environment.”
