The University of Cincinnati
Executive Director Ethics Center
Founded in 1819, the University of Cincinnati embarks upon its third century – building on the past and defining the future by leading urban, public universities into a new era of innovation and impact through its strategic direction, Next Lives Here. Underscoring the power of creativity, ingenuity, invention and inclusion, what’s Next will accelerate our unrivaled momentum, evidenced by eight straight years of record enrollment and rankings that include placement among America’s top 100 public universities by U.S. News & World Report. Home to a diverse student body of nearly 47,000 and more than 4,200 distinguished faculty, the university combines its Research 1 (Very High Research Activity) Carnegie Classification with a physical setting that The New York Times recently acclaimed as “the most ambitious campus design program in the country.
About the Department
Trust forms the basis of a thriving community. Because we inherently trust people we believe to be ethical, the University of Cincinnati is embarking on the creation of a nascent Ethics Center to be a trusted resource for ethical expertise and leadership in the Greater Cincinnati community. This Center, which further supports UC’s Next Lives Here initiatives, will be known for providing tools, facilitating inclusive conversations, and conducting scholarship that promotes ethics as a foundational principle. Through collaboration with individuals, non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and business partners, the Ethics Center will promote an inclusive, just, equitable, and livable community.
The purpose of the Center is to enhance awareness, promote civil discourse and justice, and provide tools that facilitate integrity and support ethical decision-making to create healthier communities through partnerships at UC and within the surrounding community. Our mission is to bring together community members, students, staff, and scholars to foster dialogue, solve problems, and advance knowledge. We believe that moral inquiry–about right and wrong, justice and injustice, character and integrity—should not be confined to the classroom.
The Executive Director role is integral to the development, growth, and success of the Ethics Center and creating the tools to facilitate truly inclusive conversations. This position is vital to the success of the Ethics Center and will help create a uniquely inclusive center by promoting ethics, trust, and building bridges in our community.
A resume and cover letter are required for this position. Please ensure they are attached prior to submitting your application.
Develop and lead an inclusive Ethics Center encompassing the University of Cincinnati and the broader community.
