Education without Indoctrination: Teaching Ethics in the Interdisciplinary Core Program of a Religiously Affiliated University

Teaching Ethics 18 (1):79-96 (2018)

Paul E. Carron

Ethics instruction within an interdisciplinary core program involving a diverse student community representing many major fields of study presents unique challenges. Those challenges are in some ways compounded in the context of a religiously affiliated university whose spiritual and ethical commitments are grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition even as its student population reflects increasing religious diversity. The authors present one method of addressing these challenges in hopes of inspiring broader discussions of how to teach ethics across the curriculum to students from many backgrounds and with myriad academic and professional goals.
