Center for Ethics & Religion
The mission of the Center for Ethics and Religion is to educate - through dialogue - the Queens community and the broader community on ethics and religion, paying particular attention to the intersection of those two aspects of our lives.
The Center seeks to embody the Presbyterian tradition of "Thinking the Faith." At the same time, the Center is open to the insights and traditions of other faith communities and other visions of the good life.
In the process of dialogue, both the presenters and the audiences have the potential to learn and to be transformed in their thoughts and actions. All programs of the center will follow the ethical foundations of dialogue, especially being willing to listen to other views and being open to the truth that comes from the dialogue.
Queens University of Charlotte has an important presence in the Charlotte community as an educational resource, and the Center for Ethics and Religion seeks to both deepen and broaden Queens' service to the community.
