The EAC program seeks to make ethical reflection a vital part of the ethos of Young Harris College. It promotes creative and critical conversations on ethical issues and values as a vital part of the mission of the college. The program encourages discussions about, “how we ought to think,” “how we ought to act” and “who we are” among students, faculty and the rest of the YHC community. The program provides resources to support faculty, administrators and staff who wish to integrate discussion of ethical issues and values into classrooms, extracurricular programs or other initiatives.
The goal of the EAC program is to provide students, faculty, and staff with ways to authentically attend to ethical and moral dimensions of our lives. After completing a four-year degree at YHC we expect students to be fluent in their uses of ethical discourses and in their abilities to reflect responsibly about prominent moral questions in their career paths and fields of study.
