Scandals involving ethics within engineering, business, and medicine negatively affect members of the public, corporations, and governments. Effective ethics training is necessary to address these problems, as well as to raising the reputations of individuals, organizations, and institutions that value ethics and engage in ethical behaviors. To do so, this site provides educational materials on applied ethics, as well as collects information regarding what people think is right and wrong and why, to further develop ethics curricula and contribute to the development of character and perspectives crucial to international leadership, professionalism, and citizenry.
