Human Values Forum

The Human Values Forum complements the more formal educational initiatives sponsored by the Center and is made possible through the generosity of Bert G. Kerstetter ’66.

The Forum provides an opportunity for approximately 50 undergraduate students and 15 faculty members to meet in an informal setting to discuss current and enduring questions concerning ethics and human values. Students and faculty meet over dinner at 5 Ivy Lane throughout the academic year. Professor Peter Singer serves as adviser to the student leadership.
