Summary: The Institute for Practical Ethics and Public Life at UVA
The 2012 Faculty Fellowships for Courses in Ethics or for
Integrating Ethics into Other Subjects
Thanks to a generous gift from the Richard D. Donchian Foundation, the Institute for
Practical Ethics and Public Life (IPE) announces the second round of fellowships to enable
UVA faculty across the University to
(1) develop new courses or enhance existing courses devoted to ethics, OR
(2) integrate ethical analysis and reasoning into existing or new courses that
address other topics.
Proposed courses may focus specifically on ethics or incorporate ethics into other subject
matter, such as genetics, history, or education. In the first two years, the IPE received a total
of twenty-six applications for these fellowships. Twenty came from nine different
departments in Arts and Sciences, and six from other schools. The IPE awarded six
fellowships in 2010 and five in 2011. It expects to award a similar number in 2012.
