Abstract

Traditionally confined largely to programs in philosophy and religion, the teaching of ethics has in recent decades spread virtually across the curriculum of higher education. The contributors to this book discuss the rationale for supporting efforts to teach ethics across the academic curriculum, the variety of challenges such efforts face, and the sorts of benefits faculty and students who participate in ethics across the curriculum endeavors can expect.
