Program on Values in Society

The Program on Values in Society (POV) is dedicated to research, teaching, and outreach on ethical issues that arise across the disciplines.  The Program is committed to facilitating the multidisciplinary collaboration that is essential to finding practical and insightful responses to today’s myriad moral problems. The members of the Core Faculty are currently working on a variety of issues, including global climate change; immigration and international justice; and medical practice and disability rights.
