The Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence is charged with creating internationally recognized programs and initiatives devoted to ethical inquiry in both its practical and theoretical aspects, and to facilitating the development of future leaders who will, in the words of Dr. Inamori, "serve humankind through ethical deeds rather than actions based on self-interest and selfish desires." To that end, we have sought to lead several large-scale research initiatives that support the advancement of local, national and global leaders who can make the ethical choices needed to protect humankind and the environment.
The Inamori Center has five primary areas of focus:
- Ethical Leadership
- Emerging Technologies
- Corporate Ethics
- Environmental Ethics
- Military Ethics
The Inamori Center also hosts speakers, symposia, conferences related to these topics and others, as well as participates in similar events. Please see our News, Campus Events, and Video Resources for additional information.
