Administrative History: The Center was created in 1988 to provide a special ethics resource to Marquette University and the community at large. Since its inception, the Center has received financial support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and internal university support from various sources. In 1990, the Center completed a major two-year program to train Marquette faculty from disciplines across the university spectrum to integrate ethics into their own curriculum. The Center has also sponsored various speakers programs, including its annual Jesuit Lecture on Human Values. It published Ethics Across the Curriculum: The Marquette Experience in 1991 and Teaching Ethics: An Interdisciplinary Approach in 1994.

Directors of the Center for Ethics Studies:
