What is the Jackson Center?
The primary focus of the Jackson Family Center for Ethics & Values is to cultivate awareness throughout the academic and surrounding communities of the importance and lifelong rewards of personal and professional integrity. In order to achieve its goals, the Jackson Center sponsors four cornerstones: the Jackson Scholars, Junior Scholars, the Jackson Resource Center and Visiting Ethicists. The Center is guided by a director, assistant director, as well as a board of directors in order to recognize and celebrate the rich history and example of Mary Emily and Nelson Jackson and their family.
The mission of The Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values is to create opportunities for open conversations about how ethics and values affect the individual, the university, the region and the world.
The vision of The Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values is to inspire individuals to make ethical and value based decisions, and thus live lives of courage, compassion and integrity.
