The Institute for Ethics & Public Affairs (IEPA) exists to raise awareness and stimulate discussion of the ethical dimensions of matters of public concern, within both the ODU campus community and the larger Hampton Roads community. It is housed in the Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies, and its Co-Directors are members of that department. Its mission includes the following:

  • Strengthen moral community and foster a commitment to ethical ideals in public life
  • Facilitate reflection on the ethical standards that govern the professions
  • Highlight the unique and valuable contribution that philosophical reasoning can make to practical decision making
