2010-11 Arsht Research on Ethics and Community Grants Awarded
The University of Miami Ethics Programs have awarded eight grants for the 2010-11 Arsht Research on Ethics and Community program. A total of 58 UM faculty and students worked on projects in the eight different areas of research that were awarded grants.
“The breadth and diversity of these projects are daily reminders of the creativity and commitment of our students and faculty,” said Kenneth Goodman, Ph.D., co-director of the University of Miami’s Ethics Programs and director of the Bioethics Program.
“Adrienne Arsht’s passion for ethics and her investment in relevant research is generating significant returns for UM faculty, students and the wider community,” added Anita Cava, J.D., associate professor of business law and co-director of the UM Ethics Programs.
The Arsht grants, now in their fourth year of funding, are made possible by the generosity of UM trustee and philanthropist Adrienne Arsht, whose gift of $3 million is the largest for ethics in Florida. Grants are awarded to teams of faculty and student collaborators from UM’s Gables, medical and marine campuses to conduct research projects that address contemporary moral issues with implications for public policy, professional practice or human rights.
The program’s 2011-12 call for proposals will be released in the spring. For more information about the Arsht Research on Ethics and Community Grants call 305-243-5723, or send an e-mail to email@example.com.
