An opportunity for UNC faculty interested in ethics.

The Parr Center for Ethics has a committed group of Fellows, from across the University, with an active interest in teaching and promoting discussion of ethical issues. Together they help the Parr Center serve as the public face of the University’s commitment to ethics and the focal point of productive discussion of ethical issues across campus and in the community.

Fellows are appointed by the Center’s Director, with counsel from the Advisory Board, and were chosen based on their contributions to stimulating ethics throughout the broader University, fostering partnerships with internal and external organizations, as well as garnering financial support through grants and private sponsorship.

Becoming a Fellow has several benefits.

First, you will join a network of faculty from across the campus who are working on ethical issues and can come together periodically to discuss issues that matter to you, research that might advance our understanding of these issues, and ways of bringing these issues to the classroom.

Second, you will be notified of and invited to attend Parr Center events.

Third, you will have priority in suggesting and working with the Center’s staff to organize events.

Fourth, and finally, you will have special access to Center funding to support programs, research, or course development, and will enjoy the support of our administrative staff in organizing events.

In turn, we ask Fellows to contribute to the Parr Center, to help it live and thrive. We expect them to offer us ideas and suggestions. And we count on them to participate in our events on a regular basis.

If you are a faculty member of UNC Chapel Hill, you may apply to become a Faculty Fellow of the Parr Center for Ethics.

To apply, please attach by email a letter describing your current research and teaching interests to Parr Center Director, Sarah Stroud.
