This semester, the ethics center has only virtual meetings on Teams. For paper review and philosophy questions,  look at the schedules below. Have Teams open on your computer (Chrome browser recommended) and click on the link for that particular time. Send us your paper using the file link on Teams. Or just ask us a question about philosophy.

Tuesday- Thursday:


See you on Teams

Any philosophy major or undergraduate student in a philosophy course is encouraged to discuss their philosophy paper.  We are happy to offer suggestions on how to write clearly and concisely, and on how to strengthen arguments. We do not just read papers. We expect you to come with questions about your paper: Is there a paper argument that you think needs to be stronger? Is your thesis qualified and controversial? Is there good support for your thesis? Have you presented an objection an opponent might rise and replied? 

Another purpose of the Jann Benson Ethics Center is to assist undergraduates with their understanding of ethical issues and theories.  One way we do this is by discussing ethical theories, or thought experiments that were presented in a philosophy classroom.  The idea is that center staff can supplement classroom content by explaining it in a different way than the student originally learned it, or simply by spending some extra one-on-one time with you.
