Tea & Ethics Series

The Tea & Ethics event series is the flagship of The Jackson Family Center for Ethics & Values.  Usually held twice a semester, Tea & Ethics presents specific and interesting issues within the philosophical school of ethics.  Prior to the actual presentation, and after the presentation as well, attendees are encouraged to enjoy complimentary tea, snacks and lively discussion.  The presentation format varies widely, from a single speaker to panel style, and the Center has also hosted guest presentors for some events.

Check on the current schedule for dates, times and locations for upcoming Tea & Ethics events.

Below is a list of past Tea & Ethics, which will eventually link to blurbs, the original flyer for the event, and linked video of the presentation (if we have it).  Please check back for more updates!
