The Center for Values and Social Policy occupies a space above the Philosophy Department in the northwest corner of Hellems Hall. The Center houses the Morris Reading Room, which is a moderately-sized philosophy library including current subscriptions to many journals in philosophy, as well as an extensive collection of ethics, value, and social policy literature. The office of the Director is located in the Morris Reading Room in room 269A.


The Center plays host to numerous talks and projects, and has, in the past, received support from various charitable and private organizations. If you have a particular issue or an idea for a project that you would like to see addressed by Center faculty, and/or if you would like to contribute to the Center, please e-mail the Director to initiate discussion.
