The Christos and Mary Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics at Southern New Hampshire University Undertakes Major Ethics Initiatives

The Christos and Mary Papoutsy Distinguished Chair in
Business Ethics at Southern New Hampshire University

Southern New Hampshire

The Christos and Mary Paoputsy Distinguished Chair in Ethics has been established to
address the university's mission to develop within students the wisdom to lead ethical
professional and personal lives. Ethics is understood to encompass a wide range of
topics including social justice, human rights, civil rights, and those essential ideals that
extend back to our classical forebears.

The Chair will promote this goal through teaching, community lectures, working with
faculty and staff to enhance this dimension of thei teaching and work, interacting with
the external constituencies, and playing a leadership role in campus-wide initiatives
related to the topic.

Using the Classics as a foundation and extending through contemporary writers and
thinkers, the Chair will bring into the curriculum and the community dialogue the
cultural, historical, and contextual intellectual traditions in which we have come to
understand the exercise of ethical choices.

The Chair will organize a series of discussions and lectures on major ethical issues
facing society today. These issues will range from the ethical implications of scientific
and medical breakthroughs to environmental crises to economic and business.
